Working Groups

The Oracle Usability Advisory Board currently supports seven working groups, based on the issues that board members have articulated since first meeting in 2008. These groups conduct breakout sessions at board meetings, as well as web conferences, surveys, and other activities between meetings. All working groups have one or more Oracle facilitators, who organize activities and report to the board at large. The current active working groups are:
