Chevron Earns Top Marks on Corporate Equality Index for 18th Consecutive Year

Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced the company received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the 18th consecutive year.

Chevron is among other major U.S. businesses that received a CEI rating of 100 points along with the new Equality 100 Award: Leaders in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion, a distinction recognizing companies that meet or exceed elevated criteria focused on four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families
  • Supporting an inclusive culture
  • Corporate social responsibility

“Chevron is extremely proud to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index for the 18th consecutive year,” said Josetta Jones, Chevron’s chief diversity and inclusion officer. “We strive to create a workplace where all employees feel safe, heard and respected. While no place can be perfect, it is wonderful to have our efforts validated. Chevron has worked to support its LGBTQ+ community long before it was an industry standard, and we will continue leading the way to a brighter, more inclusive future for all employees.”

Chevron has a long-standing legacy of diversity and inclusion in support of its LGBTQ+ workforce. Chevron was the first major U.S. energy company in the oil and gas industry to include sexual orientation and gender identity in our Equal Employment Opportunity policies (1993), the first to offer domestic partner benefits (1998) and the first to offer fully inclusive transgender wellness benefits (2011).

“We have made significant progress in ensuring our employee benefits are inclusive and that our culture fosters a sense of belonging and respect for everyone,” said Marissa Badenhorst, vice president of Health, Safety and Environment and executive sponsor of the PRIDE employee network at Chevron. “We believe that diversity is our strength, and that by supporting our LGBTQ+ employees, we are enhancing our innovation, performance and social impact.”

“For well over two decades, businesses have played an important role in furthering LGBTQ+ equality by centering employee needs and voices when it comes to workplace inclusion. While there is much more work to be done, year-over-year growth in CEI participation is evidence of a business community that recognizes the responsibility and value in upholding equity and inclusion,” said RaShawn “Shawnie” Hawkins, senior director of workplace equality for Human Rights Campaign.
