NGIS supports SSSI breakfast for women in STEM

NGIS was proud to sponsor the SSSI Expedition to Antarctica breakfast that featured Geospatial Scientist, Mary-Ellen Feeney. 

During the breakfast, Mary Ellen shared her recent experience with Homeward Bound, a leadership, strategic and science initiative encouraging 80 selected female leaders from around the world. 

The initiative aimed to promote women’s leadership, encourage the participation of women in STEM and confront environmental issues over the month long expedition in Antarctica.

Through Mary Ellen’s experiences the breakfast attendees were encouraged to discuss and strengthen the role of female growth in STEM careers. 

The Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) is the Australia’s national for professionals in the spatial information industry and NGIS were appreciative of the opportunity to help promote women in STEM. 

NGIS is always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to join our team, get in touch if you would like to work with us!
