Diversity and Inclusion
At ChampionX, we know our success is dependent on the success and fulfillment of our people, so we prioritize the creation of safe environments where colleagues are respected, valued, and seen for who they are as individuals. Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Council is chaired by our CEO. Nine employee resource groups (ERGs) foster a sense of belonging across cultures, experiences, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Here, diversity and inclusion are more than buzzwords – they are a fundamental strength and essential cultural aspect of our company.
“I want ChampionX to be an extraordinary company that has a highly differentiated culture – a place where people feel energized about being part of a purpose-driven company, they see themselves in the culture, and everyone has a sense of belonging and the opportunity to realize their potential.”
- Soma Somasundaram, ChampionX President & CEO
Employee Resource Groups
With more than 1,000 members from every business segment and in every region where we operate, our nine employee resource groups provide opportunities for advancing our D&I journey, building leadership skills, training, networking with colleagues, and much more.
Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Council includes senior leaders from across our businesses and rotating employee resource group (ERG) leaders. Headed by our CEO, the council is tasked with:
- Developing, enhancing, and integrating D&I activities with ChampionX’s overall business strategy and objectives
- Working with leadership and employees to institutionalize talent, total rewards, and employee relations practices that support and accelerate D&I
- Monitoring and tracking progress of D&I objectives and targets
- Championing D&I and promoting company-wide communication on progress
We view collaboration and relationship building as keys to success and give employees the tools, resources, and support they need to unlock their potential and drive their careers. Partnerships with ALLY Energy, Women’s Energy Network, and the Energy Workforce & Technology Council provide opportunities for ChampionX employees to learn, grow, and network.
At ChampionX, we are empowered and driven by the continual pursuit of excellence, keeping us curious, humble, and always learning. Each year we dedicate a full month to highlighting and enhancing personal and professional development. Our annual Continuous Improvement conference connects our purpose Improving Lives to our business. And throughout the year, leadership development programs and instructor-led behavioral training equip employees to unlock the potential in themselves and each other.

Our D&I Council, partnerships, and personal and professional development programs create growth opportunities and foster a safe, inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive.
Gabriela Orozco Morales
Marketing Manager in Texas
“I love my team because it’s very diverse. There are five of us on the team from four nationalities, and we all have different skills that complement one another. This team, and others that I have worked with at ChampionX, welcomes new ideas and different viewpoints. While sometimes those ideas are challenged, we arrive at the best solution because we brainstormed as a team.”

Regional Marketing Manager in the U.K.
“ChampionX is a very inclusive organization. Senior management are available and willing to take on individual viewpoints and use these to drive change within the company. We’re also encouraged to take part in surveys asking for feedback from employees. The results of these, and the proposed initiatives to drive change, are also shared afterward. It really makes you feel like you can make a positive impact on the company’s direction.”
