Young Professionals/Mentorship Session

Part 1: Becoming a Geospatial Leader What does it take to be a leader in the ever-evolving world of geospatial sciences and technologies? In this discussion forum, learn about URISA resources, educational opportunities, and the value of mentorship in furthering personal and professional development for success.

Part 2: Mentorship towards leadership Young professionals and seasoned veterans alike are invited to share their experiences, questions, and ideas to foster “mentorship towards leadership.” What synergies can we create among local URISA chapters, international URISA programs, and university academic programs? Then “speed-connect” with fellow GIS professionals to help build your network and see if there’s a mentorship in the making.
