Chevron Dives Deep: Inspiring Future Leaders in AmCham’s Student Leadership Program

Share This Post

Chevron, one of the country’s long-standing and biggest US investors, together with the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), hosted top students from the country’s leading universities to a leadership talk.

The talk included the general managers of Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI) and Chevron Holdings Inc. (CHI) and students who are part of the AmCham Business Leadership Program (BLP), which grants Filipino students opportunities to interact with executives of top companies in the Philippines. BLP enhances the students’ understanding of the role of business in national development and provides a broader perspective on key global business and economic issues. AmCham exclusively invites top university students to participate in the BLP and to familiarize them with the contributions of American multinational companies to the country.

Chevron, recipient of the Best Companies to Work For award at the HR Asia Awards 2023, has been a steadfast supporter and sponsor of BLP for the past 20 years.

Ethan Flowers, general manager of CHI, imparted insights on his journey at Chevron and strategies for effective team management. His talk was followed by Billy Liu, general manager of CPI, who discussed achieving work-life balance.

“Intellectual curiosity, problem-solving and analytical skills serve really well in your career if you end up working in big companies like Chevron or other multinational companies. These will help you contribute to the team,” Flowers shared.

“We must know our priorities and take good care of our health because how can we deliver a good output if we are not feeling well? We should always strive for work-life balance,” added Liu.

BLP alumni Tonie Miclat and Eds Bernardo also shared how BLP helped them in their journey toward getting hired at Chevron and how the company strengthened their career growth. The talk inspired and motivated the students of BLP, encouraging them to persevere in pursuing their career goals.

“We are delighted with this activity where our students have the opportunity to engage with Chevron executives and gain valuable insights that will inspire and motivate them in their journey toward building a career. We are truly grateful to Chevron for being our partner over the years and for inviting us to participate in this event exclusively for our students,” shared Pinky Jamili, business leadership program project manager at AmCham Philippines.

“We at Chevron are thrilled to celebrate our 20-year partnership with this program. Both CPI and CHI have engaged in meaningful discussions with hundreds of exemplary and bright young Filipino students who have participated in the BLP. We are also pleased to host events like this, where we meet students who are curious and ask insightful questions. We take great joy in sharing our experiences and imparting leadership insights, because we believe these can significantly benefit the students in their career journey,” said Flowers.

Chevron scholars from the University of the Philippines Diliman also joined the talk. The event concluded with an office tour of Chevron facilities, where students had the opportunity to see various departments of Chevron and meet some of the employees.
