Experiences define us. Everything we do—as individuals, as consumers, as employees—is made up of a series of interconnected experiences. They shape our identities, set our expectations, and inform our decisions.
And I am not just saying this because I have spent the last 21 years of my life helping technology vendors market and sell customer experience management products. I am saying this because the experiences I have had in my personal and professional life have made me the person I am today.
Growing up as a middle kid of seven – a brother, two sisters, a step brother and two step sisters – shaped my thinking and approach to everything in my life. And I am fortunate that the lessons I learned about diversity and inclusion throughout my childhood have been reinforced by great mentors in my career.
In my new role at Oracle, one of the first things that struck me was the focus my team – and Oracle as a whole - places on creating a culture of equality. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I knew for certain that I had made the right next step in my career.
From reflecting diversity on the big stage at Modern Customer Experience, to placing female leaders on the CX Strategy Council, to our Women in Tech series, Oracle Cloud CX has always championed diversity and inclusion in the workplace and to build on that commitment, we recently started working with Women in Revenue, a non-profit organization for leaders in sales, marketing, and other revenue-impacting roles.
Women in Revenue is a group of leaders and up and coming leaders in sales, marketing and other revenue-impacting roles. Founded in San Francisco in 2018, Women in Revenue is focused on education and awareness of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, giving back to women through mentorship programs, opportunities and access to resources, and helping members advance their careers.
If you would like to learn more, visit the Women in Revenue website to find out more about the work they are doing and see how you can join, whether as a volunteer, mentor, or participant. You can also register for one of their upcoming events. The next one is about Cultivating Your Superpower and takes place on Thursday, June 25th.
