Leadership Insights from Women at Oracle

Giving is the Best Part of Celebrating

Guest Author

One of the topics frequently covered on this blog is the incredible work that Sun employees do to give back to their communities.   From Holiday Drives for gifts and food items to Fall Drives for Back to School items, our local communities benefit from the generosity (and very caring nature) of Sun's employees.

You can read about Sun's philsophy on corporate giving and volunteerism in this week's Thinking Aloud newsletter from WorldWIT

During March, Sun employees are holding drives to support charitable organizations that help women.  This is all tied to our recognizition and celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month.

In the California Bay area, we have a business clothing drive to support the Dress for Success organization. 

In the Boston area, we have our 2nd annual March Toiletry Drive to provide personal care items to local women's shelters: Rosie's Place in Boston and Bridges in Nashua, NH.

If you are looking for some opportunities to recognize the women in your organization this month -- giving back to a local women's charity is a good way to start!

March is  Women's History Month (US).   March 8th is International Women's Day. 

"Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has ."
Margaret Mead (1901-1978)
