Employee Networks

For more than 30 years, our employee networks have provided an important forum for discussion, development and connection to our communities. Open to all employees, these groups help foster a diverse workforce and create an inclusive environment of mutual respect, trust and understanding. They also connect colleagues from different business units (BUs) and functions and provide opportunities for personal and professional development, networking and community involvement. These groups raise awareness about important topics and help influence change. More than 4,000 employees participated in various networks in 2019. These networks are led by employees with guidance and involvement from leadership.

From park cleanups and dragon boat races to cultural showcases and networking events, our employee networks offer various programs and events to support personal and professional development. For example, through our partnership with Pink Petro, a global organization of men and women that believes the future depends on education, inclusion and community, all Women’s Network members have access to join and take advantage of the organization’s offerings. By forging relationships with external organizations, our network groups host various speakers to share unique perspectives on diversity and inclusion. Past speakers have included representatives from the Human Rights Campaign, the University of Houston and an Australian female football coach. In Houston, one of the most popular network events is the annual “Bring the Future to Work” day, hosted by the Parents Network, where children of employees can learn about work and life at ConocoPhillips through interactive booths and tours. In 2019, the event broke records by attracting more than 750 kids.

In the spirit of valuing all people, ConocoPhillips supports the following 12 internal network groups.
