At the UKOUG conferences in December I had the pleasure of inviting Caroline Apsey to talk about what Oracle are doing supporting the Bloodhound project.
Afterwards I asked Caroline if she would consider an interview with Oracle Scene about being a WIT with such a high profile and she was happy to do so with her colleague and Oracle Intern Lahini Sivaganeshan.
This Oracle Scene was so successful we are going to do a series of interviews and I already have women lined up for the rest of the year! We hope to include two of the students who attended OUG Ireland a few weeks ago.
Then Caroline asked me if I would talk about UKOUG and how we select papers for conferences and how that includes encouraging women. This was at a meetup she arranged in Oracle just before Easter.
Career Developer: CFPs + Presentations + Life Coaching!
In fact Abi has an article on her work again in this edition of Oracle Scene.
The evening finished with a life coach Helen Cottee talking about confidence and I loved it.
WIT groups should be about this, encouraging each other through our networks and hopefully in just these few examples you can see how one thing leads to another.
