Chevron Australia launched our inaugural Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in December 2019.
Our RAP sets out a framework to drive Chevron’s contribution to reconciliation, both within the organisation and the communities in which we work. Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia where Aboriginal people participate and benefit from the social and economic opportunities created by developing energy that improves lives and powers the world forward.
We will create an inclusive workplace where employees understand and respect Aboriginal histories and cultures and where cultural diversity is celebrated.
