Ethics and Gender Diversity in Projects: Why They Matter Especially During a Crisis | Virtual Experience Series (June 2021)
As organizations see more value delivery through projects, ethics and gender diversity are playing a significant role. The events of 2020 have increased burnout as the boundaries between work and home have blurred and companies risk losing women in leadership. They also presented an opportunity to see the impacts of ethics and need for gender diversity in the workplace. With greater representation comes improved outcomes as gender disparities promote unequal opportunities. Also, during a crisis, ethical leadership is needed to help build a business culture for survival.
Though the values of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct clearly promote equality, a gender gap still exists within the project management profession. This session will explore how both ethics and gender diversity jointly is a social responsibility and how it presents a significant opportunity to build a flexible and empathetic workplace. Also, it will highlight how project professionals can hone their power skills and rise together to increase workplace diversity. Results of research studies on gender equality initiatives and gender workplace dynamics will be shared.
