About
2018 Workshop, Madison WI

TRELIS is professional development for women in the geospatial sciences. Training and Retaining Leaders in STEM - Geospatial Sciences (TRELIS-GS) instills the concept of a human capital trellis or scaffold of support, and represents the reality of nonlinear career trajectories that move sideways, take leaps, and do not follow a single upward ladder. 

TRELIS builds leadership capacity and skills around the topics of career retention strategies, mentoring training, career transitions, technical professional development, and work-life balance. While our primary audience is academic professionals, we also recognize and support the women who move into and out of academic institutions at different career stages.

TRELIS is co-managed with the University of Maine and supported with generous funding from the National Science Foundation (Grant #1660400).
