The Aim and Scope of This Special Issue Project management is a critical field in driving sustainable development (Müller & Locatelli, 2023; Sabini & Alderman, 2021). With the current global challenges, project managers must prioritize diversity and inclusion in managing their projects. This special issue aims to explore the unique challenges faced by project managers in leading sustainable projects that must consider organizational diversity and inclusion policies and practices, especially in times of uncertainty and skill shortages. The world is currently facing unprecedented challenges, including climate change and social and political upheavals (Ika et al., 2020). As a result, project managers are tasked with leading sustainable projects that address these complex issues while ensuring the success of managing diverse and inclusive members in their teams (Winch et al., 2021).
