International Women’s Day 2024 is coming up on Friday, 8 March, and so to celebrate we’ve interviewed five women geospatial professionals from around the country.

Our interviewees each have very different roles within the wider geospatial sector, all the way from student to lecturer and from in-the-field surveyor to satellite EO operator.

Their various career trajectories are perfect demonstrations of the extent to which the geospatial sector is relied upon by the whole of society for the provision of essential services.

We encourage you to read each interview in full:

Jinan Al-Asadi, surveying student

Laura Brindle, EO satellite operator

Rachael Hurd, university lecturer

Grace Mulcahy, mine surveyor

Jemma Pico, government surveyor

We’re grateful to our five interviewees for giving us a glimpse into their careers and lives, and for sharing their experiences and the wisdom they’ve gained.
