The Women’s Business Council – Southwest works hard to provide valuable programming to connect our women-owned businesses with opportunities to grow their businesses. We are able to achieve this with the support of our sponsors. Today we are highlighting one of our Champion Circle Gold Sponsors, ConocoPhillips, and what supplier diversity means to them.  

ConocoPhillips partners with suppliers to bring tangible, innovative, and cost-effective solutions.  

ConocoPhillips’s leadership team believes that long-term success and diverse supplier inclusion go hand-in-hand, that is why they fully endorse their Supplier Diversity Program initiatives, and continue to strive for inclusion of diverse suppliers throughout their areas of operation. In 2018, their U.S. Supplier Diversity program yielded expenditures of more than $570MM with minority and women owned suppliers and more than $589MM in expenditures with small businesses!

ConocoPhillips requires suppliers who are classified as minority-owned, woman-owned, or small businesses to obtain certification through a third party entity. Visit their Supplier Diversity page to register as a supplier, and to learn more about ConocoPhillips’s supplier diversity goals, core values, and how they plan on sustaining diverse and inclusive development.
