After a fabulous first event in 2018 the Women in Geospatial Breakfast is back again in London as part of the global celebration of International Women's Day on Friday 8th March 2019.

The OGC, in partnership with Geospatial CommissionAGI & Geovation invite you to celebrate and discuss the diversity in our industry.
