In these volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous times, I am grateful to all the midwives, our Board members and staff. I look forward to future updates on our successes, our learnings, and how our work is increasing access to equitable midwifery services for everyone.
Throughout 2021, NACM has focused on four priority areas of work: Expanding Access to Community-Based Indigenous Midwifery Education; Addressing Anti-Indigenous Racism; Advocacy: Federal Investment in Indigenous Midwifery; and Member and Community Engagement.
THEORY OF CHANGE
The Canadian Association of Midwives launched earlier this year a new Theory of Change for 2021-2025, replacing our previous strategic plan. This new and exciting outcome-focused vision for our work is centered on our desired ultimate impact: equitable access to excellent sexual, reproductive, and newborn midwifery services for everyone. To achieve this, we have established 3 pillars: Advocacy, Association Strengthening and Promote Excellence. We’ve also updated our organizational values. Equity, Responsibility, Respect, and Integrity are now the values that guide our decision-making processes.
