Bio:

My name is Asya Watkins, I am the Founder & Creator of Women Of Project Management. I created this community to fulfill a need that did not exist and that I desperately wish I would have had throughout my career, a community that was intentionally created to support the needs of women & women of color in the project management industry globally.

I’ve been featured in Forbes for International Women’s Day as a leading voice in the project management profession, I’m an International Speaker, serving as the Keynote Speaker for the Project Management Institute (PMI) in Beijing, China as well as top tier Organizations, Leadership Conferences, as well as the Featured Guest on numerous Podcasts discussing the importance of diversity in the project management industry including Fix My Project Chaos with Elise Stevens!
