The Global IVMDay Organising Committee are proud to announce the theme for IVMDay for 2023.
“Helping Others Help”
In selecting this year’s theme, we are seeking to achieve two things:
Firstly, we want to bring attention back to the very core of what it is we do – we enable others to make a difference!
But equally as important, is the reminder that it is not just paid professionals who make up our wonderful profession, and so in the leadup to IVMDay 2023, we also want to explore and find ways to pay homage to all those who lead volunteers in their own time, at their own expense or as a part of a different broader job.
We look forward to celebrating and exploring these things with you all as we head towards November 5.
“Many Backgrounds – One Profession – Stronger Together”
This theme conveys a strength the volunteer leadership sector possesses that we don’t draw on enough… the huge and diverse range of backgrounds that volunteering leaders come from.
On one hand – we come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. We are also made up of people from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.
We believe that this diversity of backgrounds should allow us to think differently, we can find solutions together when we come at issues from different perspectives. As we all have different skill sets we should be able to collectively collaborate and use more these more productively.
Please spread these resources far and wide.
