Chevron Sponsors 'Portrait of the World' Workshops for Educators

HOUSTON -- Chevron is sponsoring full-day workshops for Houston educators on Mexico, China, Argentina and West Africa.

The World Affairs Council of Houston's "Portrait of the World" will teach educators about international events. Through these professional development workshops, teachers will study historical and current economic, political and cultural issues, and will return to the classroom with up-to-date instructional resources and lesson plans.

The series for educators kicks off Aug. 29, with the Portrait of Mexico. Speakers include John Mason Hart of the University of Houston; Natalie Arsenault of the University of Texas at Austin; and Benigna Leiss, Mexico country manager for Chevron. Additionally, Mexican filmmaker Natalia Almada will screen her documentary, Al Otro Lado (To the Other Side).

"Chevron is proud to support such an important program that will help educators instruct their students about important topics impacting the world," said Joni Baird, Chevron public affairs manager.
