2023 GIS for Diversity Award

GISetc Receives Esri’s GIS for Diversity Award at 2023 Esri Partner Conference. This award was presented to GISetc for leveraging GIS in service to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.

GISetc is honored to work with the 2892 Miles to Go Project and was moved by the project’s focus. Each of these miles symbolizes stories of the relationship between people and land that have been mistold, misrepresented, or omitted. Our heart is full, and we are thrilled to be available to provide a platform through Esri StoryMaps for these important storytellers. We are honored that we had the opportunity, tools, and framework for diverse cultures to tell their important stories.
