Oracle will be jumping in to action on International Women's Day on Thursday March 8 by featuring two industry luminaries in the Oracle development community at the Oracle Code NYC event: General Session speakers Maria Kaval, Vice President of Engineering - UI Technologies at Oracle and Alena Prokharchyk Principal Software Engineer Rancher Labs, Inc.
In addition to the compelling technology presentations, Oracle will also host a Women in Technology panel discussion moderated by Maria Kaval. We're looking forward to an informative and enlightening discussion. General Sessions and the panel will be live streamed. If you can't attend the event in NYC, watch live streams of the Oracle Code sessions and replays on the Oracle Code website.
Oracle will be hosting several Women in Technology events during the Oracle Code developer events in 2018.
Last week Oracle hosted a Women in Technology luncheon during the Oracle Code developer event in Los Angeles. It was challenging to openly admit that we all are subject to gender bias. But during the course of the conversation, tips for transforming gender bias into personal success and leadership opportunity came out. We also talked about how to build allies in your career. moving beyond just mentoring to actually investing in professional relationships. We talked about the definition of success and how to make sure it is not confused with approval seeking. And before we knew it, we were at the best part: 3 things we know now that we wish we had known back then.
Here's a great article from Forbes Voice by Alexa Morales summarizing the panel with a link to the panel session:
We're looking forward to meeting more women in technology during the year, and invite all to join the community group dedicated to Women in Technology on the Oracle Community Platform.
Ciao for now~
