Introduction to the SUKAD Social and Professional Initiatives (2SPI Program)
What is in a name?
2SPI stands for SUKAD Social and Professional Initiatives and it is the SUKAD version of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We chose to have our version of CSR for the following reasons:
- At SUKAD, we view the word "initiatives" as stronger and more action-oriented term than “responsibility”.
- SUKAD is a professional organization specializing in a growing field, which is Project Management. Therefore, we view our responsibilities as not limited to social matters in a given local community; rather we also assume a responsibility for the growth of this dynamic and strategic domain of Project Management, locally, regionally, and globally.
- SUKAD executive management strongly believes in the relevance of Project Management as a catalyst of change for social and community projects, which we label as Project Management for Life Projects.
2SPI is a stepping-stone toward a full not-for-profit organization that SUKAD is launching. With the launch of the new organization (foundation), some elements of the 2SPI program will shift to the foundation and other elements will remain as part of SUKAD core activities. Using project management language, 2SPI is a SUKAD Strategic Program.
