2021-2023 Strategic Plan
The strategic direction for the triennium 2021-2023 is to position ICM as an expert in creating, advising, influencing, and enabling the profession of midwifery globally.
The overarching goal of the strategic plan over the next three years is to position ICM as an expert in creating, advising, influencing, and enabling the profession of midwifery globally. In support of that goal, the following three areas have been identified as key strategic priorities for ICM for 2021-2023:
1. Drive innovation and sustainability for the future of midwifery;
2. Develop, strengthen, and support the rollout of a new professional framework for midwifery;
3. Foster a movement for midwifery, enabling and strengthening partnerships, advocacy, and communications for midwifery, with women’s voices at the centre;
As separate entities, these three priorities deliver on key areas of interest for ICM’s growth, while as a collective, they serve to pave the way for a stronger, more sustainable, and impactful ICM. Cutting across all three of the strategic priorities is a commitment to foster and promote gender equality both within ICM and across the midwifery profession.
