International Women’s Day

Celebrating International Women’s Day

The world unites on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements and drive a call to action to create a gender-balanced world. From worldwide events to online communities, Oracle is engaging in meaningful dialogue on how we can foster this balance. Read on to hear about our initiatives, perspectives, and employee stories—and get inspired to join our team.





Balance for Better

The International Women’s Day 2019 theme #BalanceForBetter is a campaign to help build a gender-balanced world. Balance drives a better working world, and everyone has a part to play. At Oracle, we’re focused on collective action around three pillars:

 

Innovating for Change

  • Real innovation happens when you bring different perspectives, skillsets and backgrounds to the table.

    Our hackathon tradition is just one of the ways we give people the time and resources to collaborate and develop ideas that turn into real solutions. Learn how one woman’s experience inspired her to organize the first-ever HACKcelerator program in Afghanistan.

 

Driving Inclusion

  • We thrive on diversity—it helps us think more strategically and work more creatively.

    This is why it is crucial that we empower our current and future generation of Oracle women leaders. Oracle Women’s Leadership (OWL) is the initiative that unites our efforts to develop, strengthen and empower our female talent. Learn about the OWL community, its support for all employees and hear testimonials from members.

 

Paying it Forward

  • We believe in the impact of ‘paying it forward’ through mentorship, social impact programs and education.

    Mentors play a critical role in inspiring women in tech—and throughout Women’s History Month, we are celebrating their stories. Share your story of a woman or mentor that helped shape your life; use #HerStoryContest, tag @Oracle and @GirlGeekX and nominate a friend for a chance to win prizes. Follow along to get inspired!
