Chevron Corp scored a 100 out of 100 on the 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Chevron forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Chevron is a signatory of the Gender & Diversity KPI Alliance, appearing to prioritize diversity over merit in its business structure through the establishment of gender and racial targets for its leadership composition and its support of DEI in its hiring and promotions. The company pledged $15 million to BLM and related causes. Chevron allegedly funds Planned Parenthood. Chevron and Noble Energy are signatories of the Business Roundtable's 2019 Statement on the Purpose of Corporation, which promotes stakeholder capitalism over traditional shareholder obligations. Chevron is a member of the MCCA, indicating its focus on recruiting, retaining, and promoting employees based on race. The company is a silver sponsor of the HRC, a copper sponsor of Out & Equal, and a corporate partner of the NGLCC. For these reasons, Chevron receives a High Risk rating.
