It's part of a global movement launched by The Valuable 500, a nonprofit that puts disability on the business leadership agenda. Oracle CEO Safra Catz signed the group's statement, which declares, "Disability is our business." Oracle now belongs to a powerful coalition: 500 companies with $8 trillion in combined revenue and 20 million employees working in 36 countries.
As a member of The Valuable 500, Oracle embraces specific goals: to table disability on the board agenda, make one firm commitment to action, and share our commitment to The Valuable 500 via social media and other channels.
"At Oracle, we believe innovation starts with inclusion and the need for people with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and abilities," said Traci Wade, senior director, diversity and inclusion, Oracle. We are proud to join the companies and leaders in The Valuable 500 to help break down barriers and increase opportunities.
