For the second year in a row, Chevron was honored for the company’s diversity efforts at the annual ourMississippi Honors Gala in Tupelo, Miss. Over 300 people attended the fourth annual event, which was hosted by ourMississippi Magazine to recognize Mississippi corporations for their efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion. Famed actor John Amos was the keynote speaker for the evening. “We should certainly take pride in the Pascagoula Refinery’s culture of inclusion and diversity,” said Anne Marie Hensley, CIS manager and management sponsor of the refinery’s Inclusion and Diversity Council. “This award is recognition of years of focused effort to build a culture where every individual is valued, empowered and engaged. “We should also view this honor as a reminder that we still have work to do,” Hensley continued. “Clearly, we are on the right track.” For more information about the event, visit www.ourmississippimag.com.
