Award Nominations Now Open for WGIC Trailblazer Awards to Recognize DEI Leadership

Nominations for the World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) Trailblazer Awards are now open.

The WGIC has two awards to recognize and celebrate those individuals and companies working for the geospatial ecosystem. The awards are focused on innovations and experiences that create solutions with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

The WGIC DEI Trailblazer Award for Individual Champion recognizes professionals dedicated to the DEI cause. It is for those who lead with a “holistic lens” of DEI and demonstrate commitment to creating and advancing a broader knowledge and awareness of DEI. Self-nominations are welcome.
