Chevron Texaco Diversity Awareness Training

In 1997, Texaco, prior to its merger with Chevron, received national publicity due to a lawsuit related to remarks made by members of its management that demonstrated racial bias. Texaco hired Campaign Consultation to develop and provide training and coaching opportunities for managers and supervisors.

In addition, Campaign Consultation was hired by Chevron/Texaco to design, develop and deliver the Diversity Awareness Learning Experience to corporate executives and field employees throughout the United States. The training included such topics as:

  • Dynamics of Diversity focuses on concepts such as defining what diversity awareness is and is not, understanding the difference between intent and impact in a diversity context, and exploring the dimensions and depths of diversity.
  • Perceptions and Assumptions helps participants to explore how their past experiences help to shape their perceptions and assumptions of difference.
  • Creating Better Working Relationships provides participants with strategies to overcome issues by incorporating a value for diversity and the strengths it can bring to an organization.

As a result of the learning experience, participants gained a greater understanding and appreciation of diversity and strategies necessary to achieving a high-performing workplace. …Learn More

International Multicultural Institute (iMCI)

In 2013, the National MultiCultural Institute took its mission of bringing diversity and inclusion awareness across national borders by becoming the International MultiCultural Institute (iMCI). As a member of NMCI’s faculty for over 20 years, Steven Rivelis, Campaign Consultation CEO, provided strategic assessment and communication intervention to assist iMCI in broadening its outreach efforts on an international scale. These initiatives highlighted iMCI’s position as a leader in global education, training, innovation, advocacy, and research for international matters of diversity and inclusion.

Among the trainings that Steven Rivelis provided for NMCI was the co-facilitation of a Training of Trainers/Facilitators (TOT/F) session, sponsored by Microsoft, at the National MultiCultural Institute’s Diversity Leadership Conference [November 2010]. This 3 day hands-on learning program provided the participants with an opportunity to enhance their awareness, knowledge and skills related to diversity, inclusion, cross-cultural communication, being a diversity champion, and cultural competency.

The TOT/F session focused on assessing one’s readiness to conduct diversity training, designing a diversity agenda, curriculum adaptation, and the skills required to facilitate an effective diversity learning program. The participants also received coaching tips and individual feedback.
