YES, it's true, many women all over the world are passionate to work on GIS. 

I am sure because I am also in one of them. I am currently a global entrepreneur and owning my two companies of online training and programs, and I am still interested in learning more about GIS because it is one of my passions. I am a Master's in Botany with a specialization in Ecology and completed one of research work on GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE with ISRO by using GIS software in my first job. With time I converted myself into an entrepreneur and now I have already completed a 10+ year journey as an entrepreneur in a different field, but still, I am following my passion to work in GIS. 

I shared my story in short because as per my experience, I am sure GIS is a strong tool for women worldwide through which any woman can create her own identity and run their own passionate work from home by using the advanced GIS tools of Esri.

YES, few months before I was not much aware of it, but in the last few months as I explored more about it and found that Esri is providing many online GIS training and platforms which are very much useful for women to learn and start their own work on it. A woman can represent herself better by learning and using Esri online.  

There are lots of things to write, I will share in my next post about that "How a woman can start her entrepreneurship journey by learning GIS software". 

I am new here and this is my first post. I am not sure that I can share this kind of write-up here or not. Request to admin to guide me for it.

This is a fantastic testimony, which should be published widely to encourage women, like me, who might not have as yet realized the GIS potentials as a tool to better their lives.

Thank you very much.
