PMIGL's Serve Squad® program is a diverse and inclusive workforce development initiative that was developed by professionals with decades of experience in project management.
Our vision was fuelled by a commitment towards social good and an anticipation that our generation will be responsible for shaping a post-COVID-19 world; therefore we focused on workforce development training as one way that PMI can help future generations ready themselves better than ever before!
