My title was software project manager but my actual work is something like: 20% project management; 80% product owner/ scrum master in several teams in my previous job. Was this common? I felt like I can’t focus if I need to wear multiple hats and all teams were depending on me. Being the only female in a software engineering department with 15+ male colleagues I feel sometimes quite lonely. Willing to join a firm and build a diversify and inclusive team

I'm also a female project manager for a male-domimated team. I wear multiple hats, depending on the day. My days vary, as I may be in deep-dive quality tasks, customer meetings, management meetings, contracts review, reviewing software development workload, etc.

My team is mostly men, and I've made it a point to connect with each teammate. I also had built up friendships with quite a few, and that helps ease any work tensions that come up.

I admit, when hard decisions have to be made, it does feel lonely. Thankfully, those situations are few and far between.

Thanks for sharing! I have never thought diversity was a big issue in the team until now.

I am sorry that I am unable to give you a helpful answer to your question. However, may I ask how was the transition to Project Management?

Thank you for the insight because it seems I may be following you lead in that regard.
