It’s a well-known fact that diversity in project management produces better project results and serves to sustainably incorporate the project in companies or organizations. In fact, according to PMI Pulse of Profession, 88% of project professionals agree that having a diverse and inclusive team would increase project value.

There is no doubt that the industry has a wealth of qualified and competent women who bring diverse skillsets and value to projects and organizations. Women are now a fixture in the profession. Yet, as in many other fields, disparities persist.

So, what is behind the gender imbalance, particularly within major project leadership?


Learning takeaways

Promoting gender parity has its impact on the growth, competitiveness and future readiness of economies and businesses.

Projects are the way organizations increasingly use to deliver their results and create value. In view of this, encouraging diversity and promoting equal opportunities for women in project management will contribute towards the success of organisations.
