Shaping a more equal technology work force in Turkey

Guest Author

Our colleague Zumray Koc, Senior Recruiter in the Middle East
and Africa Recruitment Team, is taking part in a very exciting project initiated by the
Oracle Women leadership group in Turkey. The project focuses on young female students who are getting scholarships from "The Association for
Supporting Contemporary Life
".

This is a non-governmental organisation, aiming to protect Ataturk’s principles
& revolutions, to reach contemporary society via contemporary educational programmes
and to carry Turkey above the modern civilization
level. Their goal is for the contemporary society and individual to
respect universal children’s rights, women’s right and human rights and the
realisation, protection & development of the democratic, secular &
social state of law in a society.

The project is an 8 months Mentoring Program that would help
mentees around career, personal and professional development. The mentors are a
very heterogeneous group of volunteers within Oracle. Together with our
colleague Zumray we have the Oracle Turkey Systems Sales Director, Tech GB
Sales Director, Business Operations Director -CAT & East & West Africa,
HR Director, Facilities Senior Manager and Oracle Consulting Technology
Practice Manager & Senior Principal Technical Account Manager.
They are
giving their time and efforts to this beautiful project who they believe will
also benefit from this inspiring experience.

As a member of Oracle Recruitment team, Zumray will act as a
mentor sharing her experiences and knowledge with these young minds that will
help them to start their careers: Learn how to find a job when they graduate, how to create contacts in business
life & how to define & develop themselves in their early career life.
Shortly, we are aiming to give some advice to these young ladies to prepare
themselves for an active business life.

Programs like this
have an enormous positive impact in the community, increasing the interest of
young female students into technology and shaping a more equal technology work
force.

Thank you Zumray for all your hard work on this!
