Building and Sustaining Diversity in the Supply Management Profession.

ISM Diversity Summit is Now ISM IMPACT


You want to make waves. You want to improve, advance, enhance, impact. ISM wants to help supply management do just that, and knows that increased diversity is the key to getting there.

There are many reasons we’ve chosen IMPACT as the new name for our diversity conference.

  • Ethnic and cultural diversity contribute to the diversity of thought, resulting in an increased variety of perspectives and experiences when attacking problems in the workplace.
  • Different worldviews help create smooth international interactions, limiting or reducing culture shock – a necessity when working within the global supply chain.
  • Different outlooks and increased understanding of others opens the door for a more empathetic, ethical approach to business decisions.

Most importantly, diversity ensures that the best, most deserving talent are getting their shot to improve the profession and the world.

It makes quite an impact.
