This theme conveys a strength the volunteer leadership sector possesses that is not drawn on enough… the huge and diverse range of backgrounds that volunteering leaders come from.
On the one hand – volunteer managers come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. They are also made up of people from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.
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 these more productively.
