Project Management for Women: A Look at the Challenges Women Face as Project Managers and How to Handle Them

(Read reviews)

Price: $199


It stands to reason as we tackle gender diversity as a challenge in today’s workplace, it similarly impacts the world of project management as well. 

According to the Project Management Institute, there is still a heavier concentration of male project managers.  Women are managing projects everyday even without the title.  Women are seen as the clear leaders in multi-tasking: a skill necessary for delivering on projects.
Being a project manager is primarily about influence, authority, and engagement to successfully deliver projects. In this webinar, we will hold up a magnifying glass to the world of project management through the women’s vantage point, understanding that there are additional complexities that factor into who we are as leaders.  We have to flex our styles to get results while dealing with biases that we may not even be aware of at the onset of a project.


We have 1 webinar(s) available starting between 2/21/2019 - 2/21/2019
