Why do you enjoy working in the field of project management?
Love what I do and doing what I love!
What are your greatest achievements as a Project Manager?
Establishing best practices for public, private and nonprofit organizations, launching my own business and writing my new leadership book due out 2018.
Why is a career as a Project Manager a great choice for women?
Women have lot of choices for a career path in the field of project management but I admit women need more role models, sponsors and mentors. Opportunities are available for women to excel into top executive positions as Project Director, Program Manager, Project Management Office (PMO) Manager and Portfolio Manager.
How can women stand out in the field of Project Management?
Women are continuing to make their mark in the project management profession and have positively influenced the profession over the last two decades. In our global economy, organizations are looking for project management experts, leaders of high performing teams and great communicators that can manage people, processes and politics; women have the soft skills to be top candidates for many of these great job opportunities.
What are some of the challenges women face as Project Managers?
Actually, both women and men have had challenges in this tough economy finding suitable work. The economy is rebounding now so project management professionals are high in demand in many industries.
What can we do to help women to be exceptional Project Managers?
CEOs and organizational leadership need to lead the change to be more inclusive, transparent and open to offering opportunities to help promote staff development in the form of mentoring, coaching and sponsorship.
