OUR WHY

Project management provides women with the opportunity to grow professionally and personally within a plethora of industries; whether it’s working on large projects like the completion of the Olympics or fostering relationships to help a team turn around a product. However, minimal work has been done on the diversity within project management.
Women project managers tend to be younger, less experienced, and be limited to junior roles. Many women in low-income areas do not always have the opportunity or the finances to learn the necessary computer programs and technology, which significantly decreases their chances of being competitive for specific jobs.
Our programs are designed to close the gap in salary, gender dominance, and industry awareness on the needs of project management within all industries. We provide training, support, and advocacy to help them to achieve their professional goals in project management. Our programs position women to earn a salary that will not only change their lives but their families.
With our support, Women are equipped to break into male-dominant industries and earn a notable salary; specifically in states that with a significant gender pay gap, including Virginia ($100,823), Texas ($97,177), Alabama ($95,032), Illinois ($94,640), Colorado ($92, 100), West Virginia ($91,2638), Missouri ($90,2769), Mississippi ($89,720), and North Carolina ($87,902).
