Uritus noted that when it comes to seeing people in an organization such as Oracle, diversity and inclusion are essential elements. But the Holy Grail is creating a sense of belonging. "That's not a bunch of New Age-speak," she said. "It's a smart, strategic way to shape organizational culture. When people feel they belong, their teamwork, morale, and performance naturally improve."
At the same time, OPEN launched its Belonging Campaign, an ambitious effort to promote belonging throughout our global business. The campaign's broad goals are to build a culture that recognizes, accepts, and invites people from diverse backgrounds; helps people feel safe to maximize their potential; and inspires connectedness by allowing people to bring their authentic selves to work.
