Huge congratulations to Wala Suliman, Hessa Al Shamsi and Eiman Al Shamsi, Information Technology post graduate students at the United Arab Emirates University, very worthy winners of the Map Camp Inclusion competition 2019!

The challenge was to provide suggestions for how this brilliant mapping community event can be made more inclusive in 2020 and beyond (had to include a Wardley map!).

All competition entries were reviewed by our CTO Chris Wilber and mapping guru Simon Wardley himself.

The UAEU students came across Wardley mapping through their course and presented an excellent idea around enabling Map Camp speakers to join the event by video conference. The event organisers would be able to increase the number of speakers from different ethnic backgrounds and cover new topics that might appeal to underrepresented groups thereby potentially making the cohort of delegates more diverse as well.

We think this is an initiative that should be implemented at future events and perhaps also be extended to include options for remote delegate participation.

The students would like to acknowledge their teacher Dr José Lopez Berengueres, who introduced them to Wardley maps, encouraged them to take part and helped complete the submission.

As a thank you for the superb entry Rainmaker is donating £250 to the team’s chosen charity, the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees Voluntary Fund.

 

Well done, all!
