If you have a philanthropic heart and have strong entrepreneurial, project management and business acumen skills and talents, the world needs you now more than ever. Here's how your PM skills can be put to use outside of work.
Over the years, ProjectManagement.com has shared stories and advice from practitioners who have given back—using their PM skills to make their communities, their organizations and their teams better. Here we collect this inspiring content, including articles presented as part of our annual Open House from The PMI Educational Foundation, which champions its mission of Project Management for Social Good®. These articles and webinars will show you how much of a difference you can make with your PM skills outside of work!
In this most challenging of years, we all have to ask ourselves some difficult questions when determining how, or if, to give back.
As the philanthropic arm of PMI, PMIEF was originally established to manage the generous scholarship funds donated by grateful members and organizations. Today, the foundation has grown to reach over 200,000 youth per year across the globe and continues to provide valuable scholarships and awards, along with over 30 educational resources and guides offered in multiple languages.
