We’re a proud advocate of diversity in the workforce, and we support an inclusive workplace that values the diversity of ideas.
Chevron is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion at all levels of our company. It is a cornerstone of our corporate values of high performance, integrity, trust, partnership, and protecting people and the environment. We know that hiring and retaining individuals with an array of talents, ideas and experiences propels the innovation that drives our success. A diverse workforce and inclusive culture help us continually improve and inspire creative solutions. We believe taking action on diversity and inclusion makes us more agile, trustworthy and innovative.
Chevron’s diversity and inclusion programs aim to foster a truly inclusive workplace that encourages more meaningful engagement among all employees to strengthen our performance.
Diversity action plans
Aligning with our diversity goals, employees define measurable objectives they will be accountable for – and graded on – as a part of our annual performance evaluations. These plans can be tied to compensation and help achieve our vision of diversity.
To help ensure our employees understand our policies and know how inclusion is practiced throughout our company, we provide diversity training, guidance on personal diversity action plans and online diversity learning sessions.
Flexible work practices
Whether you teach yoga training, want to be available for school pick-up, or are caring for someone in your life, Chevron encourages flexibility to support work life balance. When you are performing at your best, so are we. Flexible work practices can come in many forms, both formal and informal, and can range from changing your core working hours, to working from home or taking up the benefit of a nine-day working fortnight. It’s important to us that you get the balance right.
Employee network groups:
At Chevron, we are committed to nurturing a work environment that fosters inclusiveness and respects, encourages, and supports the uniqueness and varied perspectives of every individual. With that in mind, the company expects all employees to take an active role in fostering diversity as well.
Employee Networks are groups of employees focused on the following dimensions of diversity: gender, race, sexual orientation, age, disability, military service and nationality. Networks are initiated by employees, formally structured and aligned with Chevron's diversity objectives, values, vision and strategy. Employee networks are inclusive and each of them is open to any employee who wants to support the network's mission, vision and objectives.
In Australia, our employee networks continue to grow, and currently include:
- Asian Employee Network
- Boola Moort Network (Aboriginal network)
- Boomers (baby boomer employees)
