High Goals in Sight; High Standards Intact
CenterPoint Energy and Vectren recognize the economic importance of diverse suppliers such as minority-owned, women-owned, and veteran- owned and all categories of small business concerns to the economies of the nation, the state and the communities it serves, as well as the corporation itself.

- Participation in local, state, and national minority and women-owned business councils
- Sponsorship of various diversity tradeshows throughout our corporate footprint
- Sponsorship of networking events and educational workshops for diverse and prime (non-diverse) suppliers
- Capacity building and supplier mentoring
- Active second-tier business initiatives
