We are Oracle employees disappointed that Oracle Founder and CTO Larry Ellison’s support of and planned fundraiser for Donald Trump does not affirm Oracle’s core values of diversity, inclusiveness, and ethical business conduct.
This bold, public display harms our brand, as both a service provider and as a global employer.
What we’re proposing: No Ethics / No Work
On Thursday, February 20, 2020, the day after the planned fundraiser, we suggest all employees log off at noon local time to spend time volunteering or donating to programs and efforts that aim to resist administration policies that go against Oracle’s Code of Conduct and Ethics policies.
See How to Take Action for ways to participate in this event, as well as suggested organizations and causes to explore.
If you don’t feel comfortable logging off, that’s okay. You can still participate and we will be sharing additional details in our dedicated #OracleEmployeesforEthics Slack channel.
