Rating - Danger
High Risk

Summary:

Oracle scored a 100 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, Oracle increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Oracle forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Oracle provides a benefits package for employees which covers travel/lodging costs for an abortion and transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. The company supports the Equality Act and opposed laws like Florida's Parental Rights in Education Act. Oracle Subsidiary, Cerner Corporation has promoted the Equality Act as well as the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion pledge and mandates "unconscious bias trainings for managers". Oracle Advertising was a partner of the Global Disinformation Index before disaffiliating in 2023. Oracle continues to embrace ESG principles and embed ESG metrics into its business and its supplier relations, being a signatory of the Business Roundtable's 2019 Statement on the Purpose of Corporation, which promotes stakeholder capitalism. The company opposed various state and local legislation intended to protect parental rights, girls’ sports, bathroom facilities, and gendered spaces. Oracle's "Corporate Scholars Program" bars applicants based on race, excluding White or Asian applicants. For these reasons, Oracle receives a High Risk rating.
