Day-3 and we have walked many steps over the last few days. How many of you are reaching more than 15,000 steps before 5 p.m.? Think of all the calories you are burning this week.
Today we bring you so much more as it is our busiest day at the User Conference. The GeoNet team is on the move at our GeoNet Expo booth, at sessions, and at the events.
With the rise of the sun, Esri UC Attendees put on their running shoes and took a crisp run at the Esri UC 5k. You can watch the footage of the 5k Run on Instagram.
We kicked off the morning at the "WeCan Empower Your Voice" workshop where we met with many amazing women in tech and heard from Ali Rose, Karen Kemp, Lilian Coral, and Paulette Brown-Hinds discuss empowerment, having to speak up and how having a voice has impacted their careers in the positive and negative.

Their advice for success: mentorship, clarity about what you want to do for your life, be mission-oriented, know what is important to you when it comes to your life and career, listen and be respectful, and don't fear change.
It was a full house at the Women in GIS Luncheon where Dawn Wright and others shared inspirational words with the women in the room. They gave a brief overview of WiGIS and a call to action for mentors, volunteers, and sponsorship opportunities.

Throughout the day we had many visitors stop by the GeoNet Espo booth in the Lifelong Learning.
If you didn't get a new GeoNet button, be sure to stop by tomorrow before the Expo closes.
Michelle Mathias and many UC attendees brought their families to the Family Night where they enjoyed activities, conversation and had a chance to see what makes their parents job so cool. It's not just about maps; there are pirates, Cityworks Sam, yo-yos, VR video games, and giant bouncing globes.
Conterra had Pirates at Family NIght
Cityworks Sam danced with everyone.
Pam brought her children to Family NIght for VR fun in the HP Expo Area.
Schneider Electric had a giant globe. Imagine volleyball with that.

We were excited to meet our GeoNet members and learn more about why they visit GeoNet and hear their feedback about their GeoNet Community experience.
