Black Representation in Geography Matters
Black students and professionals are often underrepresented and undervalued in geography and GIS, which can make it hard for them to get the education and skills they need to succeed. GIS informs public policy and powers many of your favorite apps.
NorthStar of GIS is committed to changing this. Today, we provide cash grants to HBCU students pursuing geography coursework, and you can help us do more! Beginning next year, we want to provide travel grants, education grants, and conference grants to Black GIS students and professionals so that they can attend important GIS conferences.
With your help, we can provide even more Black students and professionals with the opportunity to attend these conferences and pursue their dreams in geography and geospatial education.
