Supplier Diversity Program

Our Commitment

Williams & Connolly recognizes diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values, and we dedicate ourselves to ingraining these values in everything we do. Part of this commitment involves supporting businesses with diverse backgrounds, which include minority, women, disabled, LGBTQIA+, and veteran-owned entities. We also seek to support small and locally owned business as well.  Engagement with small, local and diverse suppliers furthers our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives; allows us to provide the best and most innovative solutions for clients; and strengthens our ties to the communities we serve.

Decision-Making Criteria

The following is list of expectations Williams & Connolly requires of all vendors with whom we do business: 

  • Availability/Delivery/Turnaround Time
  • Vendor Capabilities 
  • Vendor Resources
  • Vendor’s Industry Experience
  • Safety / Quality
  • Cost/Price

Register as a Supplier

Our supplier diversity program seeks to provide equal footing and consideration for businesses that are local, small or at least 51% owned by a historically underrepresented group such as:

  • Black/African American
  • Latinx/Hispanic
  • Asian American/Pacific Islander
  • Native American
  • Women
  • Persons with Disability
  • Veterans

Nevertheless, we invite all businesses and vendors who are interested to register with our firm, regardless of size or diversity. 

If your business would like to be considered by Williams & Connolly, please email the following information to

  • Company name, Federal Tax ID
  • Business address
  • Contact information
  • Product/service description
  • Diversity certificate information (if applicable), ethnicity, gender, ownership

Submitting your company’s information to the firm does not guarantee you will receive business, but if you are a potential supplier, your information will be added to our supplier database. We will contact your business should an opportunity arise in which your goods and services match our needs.


Do I need a business certification to qualify for the Supplier Diversity program?
No, your business does not need formal certification to register with our program. You also do not need to be a diversity owned business. However, if you have certification as a small or diversity owned business, other companies may be able to find your business more easily when they are searching for a small or diverse supplier.
Does registration guarantee use of my services?
No, we cannot guarantee that registration will generate business from our firm. Registration, however, places you among the businesses we may consider when searching for a supplier to meet our needs.
