New PMI Volunteer Initiative: PMImpact

Categories: social good

In response to these uncertain times, PMI and our communities around the globe are in a unique position to help. Knowing the power project managers have to make ideas a reality, we are launching a new social good campaign starting 29 April – PMImpact. 

This initiative aims to make a positive impact throughout the world by encouraging and empowering you, our global community of passionate project professionals, to use your skills to aid communities and individuals impacted by COVID-19.  

Visit our new PMImpact microsite to see how you can volunteer and share your own unique stories of volunteerism and positive impact.  

You can contribute in two ways:

1.  Complete a quick submission form 
2.  Share your story on social media using the hashtag  #PMImpact 

We’ll be selecting stories to share on our PMImpact microsite, and resharing on our social media channels.  

As project managers, we get stuff done and in times of crises, we roll up our sleeves to do whatever we need to help. Every little bit helps.  

If you have any questions, please send an email to PMImpact@pmi.org.  

We can’t wait to hear your stories!
