As practitioners of project management, we are committed to doing what is right and honorable. We set high standards for ourselves and we aspire to meet these standards in all aspects of our lives—at work, at home, and in service to our profession. 

Responsibility, respect, fairness, and honesty are central ethical values to the global project management community. 

On June 9,PMI President & CEO Sunil Prashara issued a statement about the recent events spanning across our nation and parts of the world that have left us heartbroken.  PMI-Los Angeles stands along with our parent organization and does not condone discrimination of any nature.

In these difficult times, we remind all Project Managers of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct .  Under Fairness from the Code of Ethics: 

4.3.4 We do not discriminate against others based on, but not limited to, gender, race, age, religion, disability, nationality, or sexual orientation. 

We are PMI-Los Angeles Project Managers and, as such, we adhere to the ideals and behaviors defined in our Code of Ethics.  

At PMI-Los Angeles, the Code of Ethics is more than just a statement. I am proud that our Board of Directors – made up of volunteers of many different cultures and creeds – celebrates the diversity of thought, practice, and perspective that each member of our PMI-LA community brings. As a leadership team, we commit to doing more to exemplify and promote the PMI-Los Angeles values of diversity, equity, and inclusion by continuing to recruit and celebrate diverse leadership volunteers, providing opportunities to diverse speakers and trainers at events, and seeking suppliers from diverse backgrounds wherever possible.

We project managers are change makers. And here at PMI-Los Angeles, we are committed to continuing to change for the better the ethics and diversity, equity, and inclusion of our profession. PMI-Los Angeles stands with PMI global in building a society where racism is not tolerated. 

Best Wishes,
