Created to champion African women's involvement and leadership in geospatial careers, the Women in Africa (WiA) initiative was founded within the Inspire, Develop, Empower, and Advance (IDEA) committee of IEEE's Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). By spotlighting academic, governmental, and industrial career paths through webinars and networking opportunities, WiA promotes professional growth and motivates youth to explore geosciences. Their inaugural effort brought together historically underrepresented African women and young professionals across academia, government, and industry for Career Development Webinars.
