Celebrate Women’s History Month, by watching Venus Williams, 7x Grand Slam winner, 4x Olympic Gold Medalist, and entrepreneur, discuss how she uses data to gain a competitive edge in tennis and business. Venus’s strength and power helped change the game of tennis. Now, she is achieving similar heights in business. Ashley Hart, senior vice president of Oracle Cloud, sat down with Venus to chat about how she's used analytics to gain insights and make key decisions throughout her career.
A positive personal narrative guides not only a person’s perception of herself but how others see her. It is prescriptive, as in: “This is the person I want to be and this is the story I tell myself to become that person.” Four female senior vice presidents from Oracle discuss “Choose to Challenge,” the mantra for this year’s International Women’s Day, and the power of a personal narrative.
Injustice. Gender bias. Intolerance. Stereotypes. On International Women's Day, Oracle Women's Leadership is inspiring us all to #ChooseToChallenge the status quo and bring about real change in our communities.

Mentoring take lots of forms—everything from technical help, emotional support, and invaluable advice on how to negotiate corporate politics. Oracle’s Maria Colgan takes the opportunity to thank the women who mentored her through her career.
Oracle Marketing Specialist Faith Humbles serves as the national co-chair of the Alliance of Black Leaders for Excellence (ABLE)—an employee resource group created to enrich the careers of Black employees at Oracle. As a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry, gender equality is something which is always on Faith’s agenda, but especially so with International Women’s Day on the horizon.
“As we come to International Women’s Day and I reflect on my own experiences, I felt compelled to share how important examples can come from anywhere—and that you can never have too many role models and they are all around us. It’s as important for a little girl to look up at Vice President Kamala Harris as it is for her to look up to her own grandmother, mother, aunts, cousins, and friends,” writes Oracle senior vice president Lisa Joy Rosner.
From a senior architect responsible for vetting every COVID-19 grant presented to Oracle, to a pharmaceutical industry expert who acts as an intermediary between health science researchers and developers on the Oracle team, their stories highlight some of the contributions made by women at Oracle.
When Skye Hart read an article in The New York Times claiming that tech companies weren’t doing nearly enough to help prevent human trafficking, the Oracle solutions engineer agreed.
