Oracle Continues College Scholarship Commitment with BDPA

Globally listed by Forbes as one of the world's most valuable brands as well as one of America's best employers, Oracle is continuing its tradition of Silver level sponsorship of BDPA at this year’s 37th Annual BDPA Technology Conference, August 18-22 in Washington, D.C.

Headquartered in Redwood City, California and founded in 1977, Oracle offers software for mobile computing; database and middle-ware software that runs and manages business applications for midsize businesses and large enterprises; and Java, a software development language. Oracle also provides applications software such as human capital and talent management, customer experience, customer relationship management, financial management and governance.

Traci Wade, Oracle Senior Diversity and Inclusion Consultant, gladly reported that, "Oracle is honored to have had a long standing relationship with BDPA to provide scholarships to deserving students focusing on degrees in Computer Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our scholarships assist with providing the financial support to continue education for what we hope will be future employees and leaders at Oracle."
Founded in 1975, BDPA is the premier organization for African American professionals in the information technology industry. BDPA has 46 chapters across the United States and is the largest African American information technology association in the country. BDPA continues to fulfill its mission and work to bridge the digital divide by providing career growth opportunities for its members.
We are honored to secure Oracle’s endorsement of our STEM program,” said National BDPA president Pamela Mathews. “We look forward to working closely with Oracle again this year in advancing careers from the classroom to the boardroom.”

Hi Wayne,

It's graduation time!  I will no longer be eligible for any scholarships.  I am in the third week of my last course and will be graduating June 27, 2015 in Washington, D.C.  Just pray with me that I find a job quickly!  Thank you for thinking of me with scholarships in mind.  I will now have the time to attend your networking events.  I just prefer the ones where there is no alcohol.  The mindset changes and makes me uncomfortable in that type of an atmosphere.  I don't mean to sound like a party pooper but I really don't like the smell of it either.  



Congratulations Pam!

BDPA Cincinnati doesn't serve alcohol at our monthly program meetings.  Sweet tea and lemonade are the beverages of choice ... along with complimentary sandwiches from local eatery.   I don't think that any BDPA chapter serves alcohol at monthly program meetings ... with possible exception of Milwaukee, because the meetings are held at MillerCoors headquarters!  :)

You should place your current resume here -- http://bit.ly/168qYLK

take care,  Wayne
