Shell and Motiva were well represented by over 400 employees, retirees, friends and family at the 31st Annual United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Walk for Education. This 5k walk in Houston raises funds for scholarships given to deserving students in our community and supports member institutions to help build strong academic programs.
“Encouraging diverse talent to pursue higher education can help bring a pool of unique talent to Shell and the energy industry, said Frazier Wilson, Manager, Workforce and Community Strategic Initiatives (WCSI). This year, WCSI partnered with the Shell Black Network Group (SBNG) to lead a successful campaign that is on target to exceed $90,000 in contributions.
The Shell WCSI team leveraged an existing partnership with the Texas Association for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) organization to host the TAME Trailblazer at the event. The self-contained trailer has numerous hands-on science experiments about energy, space, weather, biotechnology, and aerodynamics. Designed for students K-12, the purpose of the trailer is to get students excited about math and science which can influence them to consider a STEM career at Shell.
