ISA is committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and intentional representation among its members, volunteer contributors, and leadership team. It is the policy of ISA to provide equitable opportunities for participation at all levels without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, marital or veteran status, or ability.
The Society recognizes that assembling teams with diverse backgrounds and experiences can lead to greater innovation and better solutions to current and future challenges. It is therefore the goal of the Society to ensure that the ISA community can benefit not only from diverse membership but from a diverse leadership team, representing all aspects of our membership. Recognizing that ISA is an international society, proactive efforts shall be made to recruit Society leaders from all geographic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, as well as all protected classes. In addition, leaders shall be sought from all facets of the automation industry, including engineering, design, education, research, technical sales and manufacturing, to name a few.
In accordance with the above, the Society’s objective is to empower the most committed and qualified member to fill each volunteer position. The skill, experience, and personal ability of every nominee or candidate for each volunteer position will be judiciously and fairly evaluated.
