feature graduates strengthen industry diversity
Fourteen talented women from a diverse range of backgrounds and experience levels recently graduated from the Chevron-supported Women in Engineering program (WiE) during a ceremony hosted at Chevron’s Perth offices.
Delivered in partnership with South Metropolitan TAFE, the twenty-week course is working to remove barriers contributing to the under representation of women within the oil and gas industry.
Since 2010, 88 women from across Western Australia have completed the Women in Engineering program, with 24 participants progressing to further tertiary education opportunities and 49 finding employment within the oil and gas industry.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Chevron Australia General Manager Human Resources Chris Watts said the supportive and inclusive environment within the classroom was overwhelming when he visited the Women in Engineering facilities earlier this year.
“We look for people with our values of safety and diversity, and we know that with the right training, we can help people build their capability and capacity to benefit from our industry.”
Chevron is committed to bringing together people, resources and expertise to deliver meaningful change in the communities we operate in.
