Moving forward with the partnership with ONE Championship, Chevron Malaysia Limited, which markets the Caltex brand of fuel and lubricants, organised a special CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative in collaboration with Riding Pink, Malaysia’s first women only e-hailing transportation platform.
The self-defence workshop was conducted by homegrown mixed martial arts personalities, Ann Athena’ Osman and Agilan ‘Alligator’ Thani, who emphasised the importance of learning self-defence to keep one’s safety while on the road. The objective was to uplift confidence in women drivers and prepare them for dangerous and unforeseen circumstances
Speaking at the workshop, Consumer Sales Manager for Chevron Malaysia Limited, Leslie Chong said: “We place the highest priority on the safety of our communities. We understand Riding Pink folks often spend more time on the road than regular drivers. This is why we aim to inspire them on the importance of physical fitness for their safety – to develop on their strength and learn how to apply some of these useful life skills to their daily routines, through this session.”
Explaining the collaboration with both Caltex Havoline and ONE Championship, founder of Riding Pink, Denise Tan said: “A strong woman is one that is determined to do something that begins with herself. We’re deeply honoured to hop on board with Caltex and ONE Championship to assist women drivers in overcoming and preparing them with the right skills in case of unforeseen circumstances that might put them in dangerous situations. These are basic survival skills which are important to the wellbeing of our drivers. We’re hoping this collaboration paves the way for other industry leaders to step up and play their part in helping and empowering more women across the nation.”
The self-defence workshop was organised in conjunction with the ONE Championship Bundle Promotion which offers a selected range of Havoline engine oils. In line with this regional partnership, customers who purchased selected range of Havoline engine oils will receive exclusive Havoline ONE Championship premiums. The bundle packs will be available at selected Caltex service stations, Havoline workshops and auto supply stores nationwide until July 31, 2018 (while stocks last).
