Message From Chapter President, Laila Faridoon

LailaPMIUAE3Year of Tolerance

His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, declared 2019 as the “Year of Tolerance” to highlight and show UAE as an exemplary example of a tolerant nation, bridging the communication gap between different cultures and build an environment where people accept each other as they are.

The general framework of the “Year of Tolerance” resolves around 7 main pillars and I would like to highlight “Tolerance in the community”. Here in UAE, we have people from over 200 countries around the world, representing a variety of religions, ethnicities and cultures, all living and working together in peace.

Cultural diversity can bring several advantages to organizations we are working for. Effective use of cross-cultural project teams can provide a source of experience, wisdom and creativity to improve the likelihood of project success. Such diverse teams with a variety of different opinions coming from people belonging to different cultures could help a Project Manager to gain new skills in managing diversity and take a slightly new and unconventional route to achieve goals more efficiently. Managing diversity is essential in a country like UAE, with all mega projects launched regularly. I encourage you to learn different from your cross-cultural team, build a positive relationship with your coworkers and boost your team’s morale!

If you have any comments, ideas, or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to communicate with us at


Ramadan Mubarak to you and your families.
