Susan Schwartz works to support and promote the project management profession as a volunteer for PMIWDC. She currently serves on the Governance Board as a Director-at-Large.

Throughout her career she led a variety of government and corporate teams successfully through organizational change bringing projects to completion – on time and under budget. She credits the cross-functional, global team successes to a combination of process review, crucial conversations, and knowledge sharing strategies.

This past January, Susan released her first book, Creating a Greater Whole: A Project Manager‘s Guide to Becoming a Leader which unlocks the not-so-secret secrets of what aspiring managers need to become strong leaders. It’s practical “outcome-tested” strategies and thought-provoking questions offer readers a means to craft a personalized framework to help them learn how to help people come together to create something larger than themselves.

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings

The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the third Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.

The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).

Please note: At this time, all PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are virtual due to COVID-19. Please visit the event calendar for upcoming dates and details.
