Podcast Episode #169: Vicki Griffiths – Why the Women in Project Management SIG is so valuable There’s more women than men coming into project management at entry level, and yet the large majority of senior roles are still occupied by men.

About Elise Stevens
I work with women in project management roles to reinforce within themselves their true VALUE to their team, company and industry. I provide a channel for women’s voices to be HEARD, SUPPORTED and EMBRACED in project management with my podcast series, personal training, digital courses and workshops.
It’s time for women to AIM HIGH in the industry, and to know that they can absolutely achieve their career goals!
I work with incredible women who have extensive knowledge, skills and passion for their career, but unfortunately the high pressure and status quo within the workplace has left them feeling emotionally exhausted; they have lost confidence in their own hard-earned skills, and are considering leaving their roles.
For over two decades, I have worked closely with project managers to positively impact and innovate effective management processes. I have collaborated with a range of organisations including Queensland Urban Utilities, Ipswich City Council, Coca-Cola Amatil, Hutchinson Telecoms and Ansett Australia.
I am here to RE-IGNITE the passion and satisfaction that you once had for your career; and to re-connect your team members for true CONFIDENCE in the workplace.

Podcast: Paul Pelletier – Women and Disrespect in the Workplace Disrespect in the workplace is easy to spot.
