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.
