    The PMOSIG is a non-profit, global professional association focused on the project/program management office (PMO) and related disciplines.  We provide education, collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and professional development opportunities for a growing global community of over 4,000 members worldwide and are registered as a chartered specific interest group of the Project Management Institute.  We focus on helping our members to bridge a critical organizational gap between strategic organizational management and execution management, translating organizational strategies into actionable plans, whether via programs, projects, or portfolio and governance management.

    The PMOSIG is not a standards organization or a standards setting body.  Rather, our focus is on establishing and communicating best practices in key areas of PMO influence as well as in the areas of strategic management, execution management, organizational governance and organizational change management as they relate to the PMO.

    The Women in Project Management SIG of PMI is dedicated to promoting global recognition of the project management profession.  Our vision is that recognition of the profession will be increased, valued and accepted because of the influence and contribution of women.

    Some of the programs we provide that assist is in achieving our goals are:

    • Ambassador and Outreach Programs:  which provide volunteering opportunities  for local or regional events.  Itís an outstanding opportunity for professional development, skills  improvement and networking. Most importantly, itís a great opportunity
    • Mentoring Programs - A great mentor can make a tremendous difference in a personís career by providing perspective, advice and opportunities for growth.
    • Educational Events/Webinars - Learning opportunities on PM related topics provided free to WiPM SIG mentors.
    • Newsletters - Featuring SIG news, relevant issues, industry developments, personal  experiences, individual and team accomplishments. Our newsletter celebrates professionals and provides a voice for the WiPM community.
    • Yahoo!® Groups eMail - Join your peers in our Internet chat feature- post newsworthy items, ask questions, share project management tips and tricks.  The group is available (and optional) to all members.
    While the types of services we provide are standard, we try to gear them with a female twist. Although our name and logo implies "women only," that's not the case--we also have men who are members. 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.
