Diversity and Inclusion
Every Impact with Local, Diverse Businesses Creates
a Powerful Multiplier in Communities
Our Commitment to
The Organizing Committee of the 23rd World Petroleum Congress recognizes that partnering with Houston’s network of diverse-owned businesses is a powerful multiplier in innovation, economic growth and community development.
We aim to create lasting value through our business activities and commit to engaging with suppliers that reflect the diversity of the Houston market and share our core values in fulfilling our important mission.
Through contracting opportunities, we place our supplier diversity commitment into practice, measure performance and elevate impact.
We’re utilizing the Houston First Corporation Vendor Diversity Portal (B2GNOW) to promote contracting opportunities associated with the 23rd World Petroleum Congress. Businesses already active within the Vendor Diversity Program do not need to take further action until opportunities are made available. We also welcome new registrations into the Vendor Diversity Program.
Small Businesses with Mighty Impact
We celebrate American entrepreneurship and small businesses as the driving force to sustainable communities, economic diversity, vibrant town centers, and local jobs and wages. Elevate your impact by choosing local businesses when you work, eat, shop, and play.
