Supplier Diversity Program

Since 2019, Phillips & Jordan (P&J) has been a Woman-Owned Business (WBE) as certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) – the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States.

Since our inception in 1952 by founders Ted Phillips and Ted Jordan, Ted’s wife, Avis Phillips, has continuously operated as a part of the P&J company over its 70+ operating history. Before Ted’s passing, she became Chairman of P&J, giving her ultimate authority over its management and control of all its common stock, officially making the company a woman-owned enterprise in 2016.

We share a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness that guides the way we work and do business. As Integrity is one of our core values, we believe in creating an inclusive and diverse environment, both in our offices and on our projects, by learning from the best, building the skills to succeed, and rewarding results. This commitment to diversity is proven by our strong work ethic, exceptional work quality, extensive resources, and priority on safety – always.

We are proud of our certified WBE distinction as part of our commitment to diversity.
