TRELIS 2019 - Washington DC - June 8-10 Workshop + June 11-13 Symposium

TRELIS workshops are designed for women working in higher education in the geospatial sciences (GIS, remote sensing, cartography, and related mapping sciences). During the workshops, we focus on five themes: Career Trajectories & Leadership, Mentoring & Coaching, Communication & Language, Dealing with Obstacles, and Work-Life Integration, all in the context of the geospatial sciences.  

This second TRELIS workshop will take place Saturday June 8 through Monday June 10, 2019, in downtown Washington DC at the Barrett & O'Connor Washington Center, a center of Arizona State University. After our TRELIS event, workshop participants will stay and participate in extended networking and professional development activities during the UCGIS Symposium that will take place immediately afterwards, from Tuesday June 11 - Thursday 13, 2019, also nearby in Washington, DC.
