DE&I at PMI: Social Good Initiative Launch

PMI launched our Project Management for Social Good® initiative, focused on diversity, equity & inclusion. This initiative will focus initially on the challenge of racism and unconscious bias, evolving over time to include additional topics impacting our community, such as gender equality. Please take a moment to read Sunil’s CEO Pledge to know where we stand.

We want to hear from you—Please share with us via Diversity@pmi.org:

  • What are you or your chapter doing to address topics of diversity, inclusion, equity and racial equality?
  • Would you be willing to share your story so others in our global community can learn from you and your chapter’s efforts?
  • What can PMI do to support you in these efforts?

 We look forward to hearing from you and working together in support of a more equitable society.
