Women In GIS (WIGIS) is a network of people sharing ideas, experiences, and resources to promote geographic inquiry and support women working in GIS and related fields. WIGIS is a Special Interest Group of the Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter of URISA.
Several WIGIS members (including a local social media guru) have been brainstorming about new directions for WIGIS that include expanding our network, opening channels of information, and more actively encouraging participation from all members. We're thinking Twitter, Facebook, a wiki page perhaps.
We invite you to join us for Happy Hour on September 30, where we hope to continue discussions in this vein. Please come if you want to bounce around ideas, learn more about social media, or just get to know other local folks who share an interest in GIS. All are welcome.
- Marcelle Caturia, Sarah Beecroft, Christina Friedle, Justin Houk, Molly Vogt
