Be a part of the Homecoming!
We’re highlighting the work related to our theme of Resistance and Resilience in Black Communities! So, we’re inviting you to share presentation abstracts related to:
- Environmental and Climate Justice in Black Communities
- Food Security and Food Systems
- Health Equity in Black Communities
- Community Resources for Resilience in Black Communities
- Community Resources for Preserving Black Histories and Cultures
- Black History Archives and Museums
- Our Global History of Resistance and Resilience in Black Communities
- Unapologetic Blackness
- Unapologetic Intersectional Racial Justice
- Organizing and Leading Black Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Why are we focused on Black communities, students, educators, entrepreneurs, and other professionals?
With your help, we’re seeking to raise awareness of GIS as a field of practice, technology, and career path as well as the impact of GIS on Black people. We want to address this by sharing insights through presentations, maps, workshops, and other sessions during Homecoming.
Submit your abstract to raise your voice and visibility into issues affecting Black communities. Your work could inform and inspire career seekers, students, educators, and professionals.
