The APM Women in Project Management SIG believe that there are many members of the APM who could, and should, apply for Fellowship. Some have never considered it and many don't really know what it entails. Many of these are women, who are under-represented at Fellowship level (there are only 10 female fellows at the moment.)
WiPM are launching a campaign to encourage women to apply for Fellowship, as well as men. While APM Fellowship recognises a significant contribution to the development of the art and science of project management, either as practitioner, teacher or researcher, it isn't an impossible goal.
On the 18th of November 2010 the SIG held a teleseminar to find out:
- why APM are encouraging women to apply,
- exactly what the steps in the application process are, and
- hear stories from current APM Fellows.
During the telephone conference Andrew Bragg, CEO of APM explained why this is important for APM and there were contributions from exisiting APM Fellows talking about their experiences of Fellowship.
