100 women in projects from all over the globe shared their experiences about their career.
A majority said they had faced challenges at work related to their gender or being part of a minority group – with key themes emerging – including not being heard or taken seriously.
I have recently presented some of the findings of this research at the PMO Impact Summit with a global audience.
This was such a great experience to amplify my own message and share these findings about the common themes emerging for challenges AND goals.
In the session I explored why not listening to women is bad for projects, what organisations can do to listen better, as well as some things women can do to amplify their message.
Laura and I also discussed the roles of both men and women in influencing the experiences for women in the profession – the good and the bad.
