PMI Sydney Evening Event: 29 October 2018 - The Corporate Socially Responsible Project Manager

During the Design Thinking Workshop earlier this year, ideas around Members of the PMI Sydney Chapter working on Projects for Charities & Not For Profit companies emerged as a popular ‘Member Suggestion”. 

 The PMI Day of Service emerged as a suitable initiative and those who are able to, have registered to attend the entire day as a volunteer, to work on such projects with a range of Charity and NFP organisations. 
 
Immediately after this full day of activity, all PMI SC Members are invited to join the event, for a regular Members Chapter event, and to socialise with the attendees from the day.  
 
The event will showcase select Charity & NFP projects that our membership have addressed during the day, and we will hear from a selection of Corporate Social Responsibility subject matter experts on both the community benefit that CSR addresses, and how it benefits Project Managers, general employees, and Corporations.

Why (leaky) Pipelines of Talent Matter: Lessons from the Nuclear Industry

 

ABOUT:

We’re used to hearing slogans abound on how ‘people are our greatest asset’, about ‘pipelines of talent’ and how much ‘diversity matters’. But what evidence is there that this makes a positive or tangible difference to the delivery of our projects and their outcomes?

This presentation will discuss case studies from the global nuclear industry, as well as covering some of the latest research on the advantages, and the pitfalls, of harnessing diverse talent for our global project teams.

 

SPEAKER:
