Making diversity and inclusion an everyday part of SAP’s culture

To us, diversity and inclusion are much more than policies – they help create the fabric of day-to-day life at SAP. Whether we are fostering a deeper understanding of gender dynamics, designing new workspaces to spark innovation, or supporting people in finding their voice, we believe that our differences enhance our culture and make us a better place to work.

Recognition: Assessing our programs

Culture takes shape through people, and it is the people of SAP who bring diversity and inclusion to life. We seek to support them through policies and programs, and we are honored to receive recognition for these efforts. It lets us know that we are on the right path and encourages us to do even more.

The link to innovation: A diversity case study

After one of our employees had a son with disabilities, he came up with an innovative idea to develop a new technology platform to support caregivers. We embraced the idea, which shows how creativity is sparked by seeing people’s differences as a source of inspiration and strength.

Creating a healthy work culture

As we embrace people’s differences, we see links between diversity and inclusion and our efforts to create a culture in which everyone can be their best. Among our goals: helping people achieve a sense of balance and wellbeing.
