  • possible opportunities for developing an assessment credential
  • potential synergies with the PMI College of Performance Management and the Troubled Projects SIG

Women in Project Management
Rose Tyler, PMP
The WiPM SIG "came back to life" bigger and stronger after a period of inactivity. In 2001, the SIG received a PMI award for regeneration. It now has over 2,000 members worldwide, 15% of whom are non-US located, including over 500 members with the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential. Although its name and logo implies "women only," that's not the case--it has approximately ten men who are members of the organization. From the male perspective, WiPM provides a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about both the similarities and differences in gender as applied to our field.

While the types of services they provide are standard, they try to gear them with a female twist. Please browse their web site to learn more about our News Brief (6 times a year), special programs such as our eMentoring Program, Yahoo Community, and the volunteer opportunities.
