GIS in Academia and Beyond Map Dashboard

Black Girls MAPP, a networking group that “connects and empowers women of color in the field of GIS”, has created a dashboard that lets users browse potential educational and Esri partnership opportunities.  The dashboard presents three synced map windows: HBCU (historically black colleges and universities) locations, GIS programs, and Esri partnership locations.  As users zoom and pan, each window displays the same geographic area.  The purpose of the dashboard is to let users discover regions near colleges they are interested that potentially offer job or internship opportunities in GIS using Esri products (and vice versa).
