The Golden Compass workshop aims to create a safe space for training and sharing experiences among foreign national women geospatial scientists and promote success in their career, leadership, and life in the US.

This is an in-person networking opportunity for women geospatial scientists who are foreign nationals and working in the US academic institutions. These women form a special group of scholars who are likely to be women of color, non-native English speakers (with English as their second language), and may lack the social, economic, and cultural capital needed to fully take advantage of their talent and maximize their career impacts. As qualified academic professionals, these women have rich subject matter expertise. The challenges they face in the workplace are related to their gender, cultural background, and social status in the U.S. All participants will share their unique experiences and challenges, as well as strategies for their success.

This event involves a one-and-a-half day networking and mentoring workshop, in Denver, Colorado on May 21-22, 2022. All costs will be covered. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation with the highest priority of safety of all our participants.
