ASSOCIATES

Réseau aims to amplify the voices of young professional women from Africa, Asia, and Latin America (often referred to as the Global South), who face unique intersectional challenges related to race, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic status. By highlighting their perspectives, we seek to draw attention to these issues and promote a more inclusive worldview.

 

This approach also aims to increase the visibility and representation of these women in leadership positions and international conversations in the geospatial arena. We believe that diverse teams generate innovative ideas, and we plan to collaborate with existing community groups to ensure a balanced approach.
