Women in Project Management:
In an era where gender equality is more prominent, we still witness a huge gap between the number of women occupying leadership and managerial positions compared to the counterpart, particularly in the male-denominated area of Project Management.
Women tend to face a glass ceiling when it comes to promotions, salary increases, and opportunities in the workplace.
Although many rationalizations can be argued to account for the difference in numbers, such as the majority of the industries that involve project management are typically male-denominated i.e. construction and engineering, we now know that PM has expanded to other industries such as Health Care, Finance, IT, and Government. Regardless, the numbers still do not do justice.
This is the reason why we have created a women’s community within PMINAC to have a platform to learn, engage, connect and support one another in hope of potentially moving the needle, or at least contribute our part in helping to break that glass ceiling.
Who we are:
We are a community that is intentionally created to support & amplify the voices of women & women in the Project Management area focusing in Northern Alberta.
Our purpose is to connect and empower our PM peers through networking, mentorship, and collaboration in order to promote and improve the Project Management industry through education, certification, events and partnerships with other organizations.
We are looking for volunteers, partners, and speakers to help plan and support the next few events that we are lining up for the year.
