Chevron PRIDE is the name of Chevron’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer, Plus Allies Employee network. The letters in PRIDE stand for “Promote Respect, Inclusion & Dignity for Everyone.”
For the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer, plus (LGBTQ+) community, “PRIDE” is a term with special resonance. It reflects journeys toward self-acceptance and justified self-respect.
In choosing PRIDE as the name of our network – and the theme of our activities – we celebrate The Chevron Way values, which distinguish our Company and how we do business.
* We respect the unique and varied cultures, people and talents that we encounter.
* We seek an inclusive work environment where all can contribute to the best of their abilities.
* We value and respect the dignity of others, their lives, families and viewpoints, even if we disagree.

Our vision is one of social justice in which we collaboratively fight oppression across multiples issues and inequalities.
Collaboration: We work to create inclusive and collaborative environments through our programming and physical spaces. We value all contributions, and we work as a collective system in which everyone contributes what they can in a feasible and effective manner.
Education: We gain information about LGBTQ+ issues, research and professional development. We believe it is our responsibility to share our knowledge, experiences and expertise in order to engage our workplace and broader community in learning and reflective practice. We know that we, as a BRG, do not have all the answers; we are open to teaching and learning from others.
Transparency: We engage in transparency both internally (amongst one another) and externally (with our customers, suppliers and communities) through communicating context, sharing as much information as possible, acknowledging help and insight from others, and avoiding unilateral decision-making.
