Oracle Women – Busting the Myths of Working in Tech

Women in IT are sometimes deterred from even considering their desired career because the preconceptions and stereotypes built on this subject keep damaging gender diversity and professional opportunities alike.

From her 7-year experience as a professional journalist for one of the biggest news channels in U.S.A, to Senior Content Manager for Oracle Social Cloud, Maggie’s blend of capabilities both as a successful woman in tech and as a renowned writer got me thinking: there’s definitely more to someone than what first meets the eye...

Family and friends come first

Maria is among the women who were interviewed by the Irish Times about their priorities in life and how they manage to balance work and private activities.

The more you balance life the more one aspect of it helps another. At work, my boss and I go through the family events of our core team and work our travel commitments around these...
