APM Women in Project Management Specific Interest Group (WiPM SIG)

About us

WiPM addresses the development and promotion of women working in project management environments and works to maximise the availability of expertise in the project management profession.

We actively promote investment in gender diversity to ensure that all project managers have the potential to develop a highly rewarding career, supporting both men and women in their efforts to maintain a balance between the many demands imposed on them whilst striving to retain their own identity.


To develop a powerful profile

  • We are active members of the APM and wider project management community and represent the voice of women.

Promote a no-barrier culture

  • We encourage all project managers to succeed in their career by providing expertise and resources to facilitate career progression.

Engage with and respond to project professionals

  • We listen to the voices of our members and tailor our work to their feedback, providing regular occasions to interact through continuing professional development events, webinars and networking opportunities.

Build a collaborative community

  • We grow dynamic networks with our members and links with like-minded organisations, sharing best practice in project management and professionalism.
