“Developing and retaining our top talents and achieving a gender equity balance are key objectives for Oracle Spain and the Country Leadership Team. We are sure that is makes us a high potential organization.”
“Gender inequality is more likely to flow from the imposition of nonconscious biases that are much subtler (than overt sexism).”
The aims of the Oracle OWL program are to increase the number of women in management roles and increase recruitment of women generally. Outcomes include the development of networks, enhancement of professional and individual profiles, new perspectives on working and promotion of corporate values.
Excerpts from an interview with Leopoldo Boado, Chairman of Oracle Spain
“At Oracle, we foster an inclusive and innovative environment that leverages the gender, diversity and backgrounds and perspectives of our employees, customers, suppliers and partners to drive a global competitive advantage.”
“Mentoring is a powerful talent management tool…Our mentees are Top Talents (men and especially women) with potential but with developmental needs; this program enables them to accelerate their professional growth and also enables the mentors to continually develop their leadership skills.”
“The mentoring program has had a positive effect on the positive retention of colleagues. Each mentee gains in confidence, benefits from encouragement and support, and becomes more visible in terms of career progression.”
