Leadership Insights from Women at Oracle

March is OUR Month!

Guest Author

March is a big month for Women --- Women in the US, Women around the World and Women at Sun!

In the US, it's Women's History Month (WHM). There's even a Presidential Proclamation issued by the by the White House each year.....here's the one for 2007)

And, next week, March 8th marks International Women's Day (IWD). The United Nations has been recognizing IWD for 30 years - even though the concept was created a century ago.

Throughout the month, women from across Sun will be celebrating 'our month' in a variety of ways ---

We'll be hosting internal and external seminars, panel discussions and  networking events, working with and giving back to our local communities and recognizing our women for their great work at Sun and in our industry.   

Sun women will be contributing to this blog throughout the month -- to highlight their activities, post their thoughts, etc.  So check back regularly to see what we are doing and thinking!

We encourage our blog readers to also post comments re: your thoughts, share your favorite quotes, and talk about what the women in your organization are doing to recognize women this month.

"They used to give us a day--it was called International Women's Day. In
1975 they gave us a year, the Year of the Woman. Then from 1975 to 1985
they gave us a decade, the Decade of the Woman. I said at the time, who
knows, if we behave they may let us into the whole thing. Well, we
didn't behave and here we are."  - Bella Abzug (1920-1998)
