The Power of Many for Social Good…….
Most people believe that when a person or a group is provided tools, knowledge, and skills, they are set for future success. As project management professionals, we know that project management skills have the power to create business results, improve quality deliverables and move businesses forward. However, we also know that the power of project management is not limited to the corporate world. Knowing that, have you ever wanted to spread your impact beyond your company to one project, one non-profit organization or charitable group and not known what steps to take.
As such let’s work together to create opportunities to get involved while applying our PM skills through various local community initiatives. This perfectly aligns with PMI Education Foundation (PMIEF) mission to bring “the benefits and the power of project management to the farthest reaches of the world for social good.” By volunteering with NCPMI community, you’ll be able to give back to make a difference that will benefit others for a lifetime.
Furthermore, PMI is supporting the United Nations’ mission to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. On a national level, PMI set a goal of providing 50,000 services hours, by challenging it staff, members, chapters, credential holders, and volunteers to contribute their collective skills and passion to make a difference in the world together.
NCPMI took on the challenge through the Social Good and other initiatives for our members to contribute 5,000 hours of services by December 31, 2019.
