Leadership Insights from Women at Oracle

Highlights from our Monthly Women's Forum - The Giving Roundup

Guest Author

Each month, a conference call is offered for Sun employees to hear from our women leaders across the company.

The December call was unique and inspiring! 

Just in time for the holiday season, several Sun women from across the US were featured for their work in their own communities:  

Last week's blog put the spotlight on Ann Bischoff-- she explained how she led the Holiday Drive at Sun in Burlington, Massachusetts. 

Just 30 miles north on route 3, in Nashua, NH, Terri McClellan and I were wrapping up (literally!) our Holiday Drive for 2006. 

For the 6th year, we provided gifts for all the residents of Nashua's Children's Home (NCH) -- the generosity of our employees is just amazing and we know that there will be lots of smiles at the NCH's party this week!


L-R: Joesph Harris, Cynthia Tello, myself and Terri McClellan pose with our first delivery (3 car loads!) of gifts for the Nashua Children's Home, outside of Sun's NH office.

Heading down the east coast - about 10 hrs by car - an hour by plane, the employees from Sun's McLean,  VA office concluded their 8th year of ensuring that 1200 kids in the Washington DC area receive gifts. Hats off to Laura Dennis for leading this effort year after year! 

Even further south - in Atlanta, GA, Kathy Chamberlain let an effort where Sun sponsored 2 families and 2 seniors thru the North Fulton Community Charities.  Part of this giving effort included the purchase and assembly of 8 bicycles!! 

Toward the west - at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Broomfield, CO, last Friday was the big CAN-STRUCTION event sponsored by the Sun Women in Colorado to benefit a local food pantry.

We're still waiting for final results and pictures to post here -- so stay tuned for those details in the next few days.
