On January 27, 2022, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation again recognized Oracle as a “best place to work for LGBTQ+ equality” and for advancing inclusion in the workplace. The honor comes on the heels of receiving the 2021 Outie Award for the Employee Resource Group of the Year, recognizing the advocacy leadership from Oracle Pride Employee Network (OPEN) Employee Resource Group for LGBTQ+ and allies.
For the 13th consecutive year, Oracle received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQIA+ workplace equality.

To achieve this honor, Oracle scored 100 percent across all criteria falling under four central pillars:
There is still more to do, and we look forward to collaborating with organizations like the Human Rights Campaign Foundation to raise the bar in creating more equitable workplaces for everyone.
