Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At the International Security Management Association (ISMA), we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment that celebrates and values diversity in all its forms. We recognize that diversity encompasses a broad spectrum of identities and experiences, including but not limited to geographical location, cultural and professional background, personal style, and thought diversity, alongside traditional measures.

We recognize that achieving true diversity, equity, and inclusion requires ongoing effort and commitment. As such, we are committed to supporting continuous learning, growth, and improvement in the industry’s DEI practices and policies.
