In 2016, Chevron’s Women’s Network launched the Men Advocating Real Change (MARC) initiative developed by Catalyst, a nonprofit that provides resources to engage men as more active and visible champions for gender inclusion. Participants in MARC are committed to achieving workplace gender equality by improving opportunities for women to compete for roles at all levels. Research by Catalyst shows that when men are actively involved in gender diversity, 96 percent of companies report progress. When they are not, 30 percent show progress. MARC programming helps both men and women break down unconscious bias and other barriers to inclusion. In its fourth year, MARC exceeds 3,500 participants – 60 percent of which are men – in 11 countries around the world.

In 2019, Chevron announced a $5 million grant to Catalyst in support of expanding the organization’s MARC program. The Chevron grant will directly support the global expansion of MARC leaders, Catalyst’s immersive training program. It will also support the rollout of MARC teams to Catalyst Supporter companies across the globe, creating a grassroots collective approach that helps men apply their influence to affect positive change in the workplace with respect to gender equality.

we’re working to advance racial equity

In 2020, Chevron made a $15 million pledge to support the Black community in the United States to address barriers to equity. We continue to address racial barriers through education, job creation, talent and leadership development, and community and small business partnerships.

Since establishing our formal racial equity plan, we have progressed the following initiatives:

we are all accountable

Reinforcing the critical importance of diversity and inclusion to business performance, The Chevron Way holds everyone accountable in advancing diversity at all levels of the company. Diversity Action Plans are required for nearly every employee, including the Chairman, and are part of annual performance reviews. Diversity and inclusion accountability metrics are tied to compensation for the corporate executive management team.

Chevron has more than 15 diversity councils across its business units that help management align diversity and inclusion efforts with business strategies.

From rig workers and environmental specialists to engineers and executives, our employees help safely deliver energy to a growing world each day.

what we’re doing

Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of The Chevron Way values and are critical to ongoing business success. An inclusive work environment that values the diversity of our employees’ talents, experiences and ideas, leads to more innovation and ultimately higher performance. The Chevron Way’s focus on people has helped establish a culture that attracts, develops and retains more diverse talent.

attracting diverse talent

Partnering is critical to our success in attracting talent – we partner with governments, communities and educational organizations across the entire educational pathway. We build trusting and mutually beneficial relationships with strategic partners and are most successful when our partners succeed with us.

We have forged strategic relationships with numerous colleges and universities around the world – developing programs that will empower students and help us to enable human progress.

  • Our relationships and programs with historically Black colleges and universities are designed to encourage minority participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
  • We have worked with our university partners to help them improve their diversity and inclusion efforts. We help develop programs to address diversity and inclusion issues and to improve opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities, the retention of students, and the inclusivity environment at their universities. We also partner with the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) to convene groups to leverage our efforts.
  • We have helped develop a number of programs focused on improving diversity with 4-year institutions and community colleges – STEM Pathway Programs:
  • We have awarded numerous diversity and pathways scholarships through universities
  • We also partner with diversity associations such as the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Great Minds in STEM, Society of Women Engineers (SWE), INROADS, and the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME) to develop programs that will help provide internship and full-time opportunities for students.
  • Chevron’s Diversity Scholarship Program disburses scholarships to ethnic minorities and women annually through seven partner organizations.
  • We support the NSBE’s Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK) camps in Houston, Texas; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Oakland and Los Angeles, California. The mission of SEEK is "To increase elementary school students' aptitude in math and science and their interest in pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) career fields, by having them engage in interactive, team-based engineering projects."

To help improve opportunities in STEM education for young girls, we convened sessions with the National Science Foundation, NBC Learn, and more than 15 professional and diversity associations to develop the Women in Engineering Educational Outreach and Training curriculum to arm teachers with materials on engineering that will help expand the pipeline of talent.

We have an incredibly talented workforce willing to share its knowledge in our various mentorship programs. All employees have the option to find a mentor on their own or with the help of a supervisor, through programs specific to their business unit. Our employee networks also offer formal mentoring programs.

In 2019, almost 20,000 employees – nearly 45 percent of our regular workforce – participated in Chevron’s employee networks that celebrate and promote diversity. These networks act as a resource for attracting and retaining talent and enhance Chevron’s reputation through community activities and outreach. They also provide formal mentoring programs and offer opportunities for skill building and career development.

To help ensure that our employees understand our policies and know how inclusion is practiced throughout our company, we provide opportunities such as diversity training, guidance on personal diversity action plans and lunchtime diversity learning sessions.
