Yesterday, our entire organization, Oracle Applications User Experience (@usableapps) got a treat. We learned about Oracle’s corporate citizenship from Colleen Cassity, Executive Director of the Oracle Education Foundation (OEF).
I’m familiar with Oracle’s philanthropic endeavors, but only vaguely so. I’ve used the corporate giving match, but beyond that, this was all new information.
During her presentation, we learned about several of Oracle’s efforts, which I’m happy to share here, in video form.
First, there’s the OEF Wearable Technology Workshop for Girls, which several of our team members supported.
Next up was Wecyclers, an excellent program to promote recycling in Nigeria.
And finally, we learned about Oracle’s 26-year-old, ongoing commitment to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
This was an eye-opening session for me. Other than the Wearable Technology Workshop for Girls, I hadn’t heard about Oracle’s involvement in these other charitable causes, and I’m honored that we were able to help with one.
I hope we’ll be able to assist with similar, charitable events in the future.
Anyway, food for thought and possibly new information. Enjoy.
