Questions which are raised in paper are: “What is gender mainstreaming and how it should be implemented into project cycle?”, “How to mainstream gender in different types of Ukrainian local-development projects according to requirements and approaches of international donors and national legislation?”, “What is project management now and how it would change in the future?”; “What is the current state of women in project management profession – globally and in Ukraine?”; “What challenges / barriers / obstacles women face as project managers?”; “Prospects for women in project management~– how can they meet challenges and overcome barriers?”, “How gender mainstreaming should be implemented in the design of education policies and programs for project managers?”
