Chevron Corporation executives believe that, just as its employees should reflect the communities served by the company, so should its supply chain. The philosophy that diversity and an inclusive work environment contribute to its success and growth endures because the company’s administration and procurement teams are willing to work harder every day to make sure women-owned suppliers are provided the opportunity to compete for business. 

Chevron had no quotas or set-asides, nor any willingness to accept higher prices or lesser quality. These standards have resulted in partnering with many WBEs that have ample capacity to support the company’s operations as demonstrated by Chevron’s 2017 spend of more than $479 million with certified woman-owned firms.  These businesses – more than 440 of them – made an enormous impact on many local communities and economies.
