About our Supplier Diversity Program:

Our program is led and managed by Supply Chain professionals that perform supply chain activities on a daily basis and are regularly involved in the purchase award process.

We strive to:
• Increase marketplace competition by developing and mentoring small and diverse businesses.
• Discover suppliers that are able to provide innovative and creative solutions to Dominion’s challenges.
• Support economic growth and invest in the communities we serve.
• Reinforce Dominion’s commitment to value different ethnic and gender backgrounds through actions.

“It is easy for a company to say that they are committed to diversity and inclusion. At Dominion Resources, we want our actions and results to prove that this is the case. Last year, we spent $393 million with 613 primary diverse businesses, with 66% being women-owned. I am proud to work for a company with strong core values of safety, ethics, excellence and One Dominion (teamwork). Ethics means doing the right thing and ensuring the inclusion of strong diverse businesses in our procurement process is ethics at its best. We look for diverse businesses that care about our values and mission and that can help us deliver on our promises to shareholders, customers, and our communities. This is important to us and ensures first time and repeat business for diverse companies with Dominion Resources. We also appreciate the partnership with WPEO as they provide direct access to women-owned businesses that meet our standards.”
