What This Program Offers

Simply stated, this program offers something for everyone. Our speakers represent both the manufacturing and nonmanufacturing environments. Their presentations will wow you with real world results and provide groundbreaking insights. You'll take home ideas to apply to your global sourcing projects and you'll find inspiration in the success stories. In addition to a program full of supply management knowledge and expertise, we’ve included a dynamic session to help you hone your networking skills (presented by one of our most highly scored facilitators). We cap off the summit with a panel discussion from your peers and members of the Hispanic Executive Summit planning committee as they answer your questions and gain your feedback about what you would like to see in the future.

Who Should Attend

This program is presented for Hispanic and other professionals in supply management. To ensure significant discussions and relevant networking, we ask that participants have more than a basic knowledge of supply management. This program is not exclusive to any one race or ethnic background, but the emphasis is for Hispanics in supply management to address concerns that they may face on a routine basis in the workplace; experiences that are unique to them. Our topics are relevant for many supply management professionals and as such, many diverse individuals are invited to learn and network at this event. ISM has many networking opportunities for individuals to share their unique experiences; including local affiliates, and groups and forums.

Why You Should Attend

This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of this valuable program. Attend this first conference and lay claim to your position within the supply management community. Not only will you take away tangible, real-world solutions but you'll begin to develop strong relationships with your peers. Never underestimate the power of a connection with a colleague in your profession.
