Women who work in the GIS professions are part of the larger STEM fields - science, technology, engineering and mathematics. At Maponics, about 20% of the STEM jobs are filled by women, which mirrors the national average. Women in STEM jobs earn more than those in non-STEM fields - about 33% more, according to the Women and Girls in STEM fact sheet published by the federal Office of Science and Technology Policy. Ideally, information about women in STEM fields, such as this map of women in GIS, will encourage girls and women to consider a career in STEM. To contribute to the Women in GIS map, click here.
