African Women in GIS Mentoring Programme

Mentorship is a recognized method for encouraging professional development. African Women in GIS launched this mentoring program to support and bring together women interested in growing and developing skills for a geospatial career. Our mentoring program provides a structured mentee-mentor pair and peer-to-peer mentoring model with the aim to build strong relationships and attain professional development. It also creates a new way to support African women to develop their careers in GIS.

This 4th cohort is set to be project-based, where a mentee is expected to submit a project at the end of the program. It will last for a period of 6 months, from May to October 2022.

My love for GIS started in my fourth year at the University when I went on a field trip to map Omo forest reserve in Nigeria. I realized that the climate is changing and one of the tools to solving this issue is with the use of GIS.
