In episode 18 of the Oracle Academy Tech Chat podcast, host Eleni Tsipa, Oracle Academy Program Manager and Alice Goodchild, Head of Oracle Women’s Leadership program EMEA, discuss why we need more women in technology fields.  

Just days before celebrating International Women’s Day 2024, Alice shares her views on the position of women in technology. To start, Alice shares with Eleni why we should recruit more women into information technology post-secondary studies, resulting in more women entering the talent pipeline for those industries. She also discusses how highlighting appropriate role models can help this effort.

Eleni and Alice speak about the benefits that the information technology sector would reap if the number of women working in it increased substantially. They discuss Oracle’s investment in women through its longstanding Oracle Women’s Leadership program, and how that program helps develop the talent and skills of women working at Oracle.

As this year’s theme for the International Women’s Day is inspire inclusion, Eleni and Alice discuss the importance of and strategies to building an inclusive workplace. To close, Alice stresses the important role of education in helping create a world with diversity, equity, and inclusion, and through thoughtful educational curricula and culture there is an opportunity for positive change.
