WELCOME to ISM - WICHITA
The primary mission of ISM-Wichita is to develop the professional qualities of its members: attitudes, skills, and knowledge in the field of purchasing and supply management.
Diversity signifies variety, including variety in the ownership of organizations. In supply management, diversity typically means an organization's efforts to include different categories of suppliers in its sourcing process and active supply base and to address the opportunities and challenges that arise from differences and similarities.
A framework of measurable corporate policies and procedures and resulting behavior designed to benefit the workplace and, by extension, the individual, the organization and the community in the following areas: community, diversity and inclusiveness - supply base, diversity and inclusiveness - workforce, environment, ethics, financial responsibility, human rights, health and safety, and sustainability.
A system of moral principles or rules of conduct recognized (and prescribed in the case of a company or organization) as essential to a particular class of actions. Also, an ISM Social Responsibility Principle urging organizations and individuals to recognize that ethical behavior and business conduct is a critical element impacting personal, business (public and private), supplier, and governmental relationships and governance.
