GeoIgnite 2020 Track Announcement: Diversity + Inclusion = Better Decisions

Diversity + Inclusion = Better Decisions

Track Chair: Biliyana Anicic

The GeoIgnite Conference and our sponsors are proud to present the second Diversity Leadership Summit. Our inaugural Summit was a great success featuring relevant diversity and inclusion topics, a powerful panel of speakers, and a “full house” of engaged participants.

Increasing the diversity, equity, and inclusiveness of the Geomatics community is essential to our mission. There can be no barrier to talent at Geospatial organizations as solving the world’s most intractable problems will require a rich variety of perspectives and abilities.

Latest research shows that decisions made and executed by diverse teams delivered 60% better results, so this year’s theme will be “Diversity + Inclusion = Better Decisions”. Our intent is to spurt the grassroots of a more diverse ecosystem where diversity of thinking and knowledge will ignite innovation and better outcomes for us all.

The Diversity Leadership Summit provides a platform for current and the next generation of leaders to:

  • Discuss challenges and opportunities surrounding diversity in leadership
  • Be inspired by influential and successful role models
  • Explore new paths to leadership
  • Network with like-minded professionals

THANK YOU TO OUR GOLD AND SILVER SPONSORS
