This webinar series highlights women in geospatial fields and provides a platform to tell their unique professional growth stories and career paths. This guided discussion will cover the speaker’s career challenges, current projects, and career growth.

Doing the right thing in a world where science and data serves politicians and bureaucrats can be difficult. While working for the Florida Department of Health, Rebekah Jones was asked to mislead the public and endanger the health and welfare of Florida’s people. She took the high road and said no, and for her ethical stance, she was fired, and defamed. Instead of quitting, Rebekah built a new GIS-driven set of applications to give the public the information that matters in an easily digestible format, without political influence. Through her work, Rebekah helps citizens around the world make educated data-driven decisions.
