Working to highlight issues, foster dialogue and create broader societal impact

We believe we have a role to play in helping to create a better world, and many of our diversity efforts extend beyond SAP. For example, we are working to support young women in pursuing technology education and careers. Through our Autism at Work initiative, we aim to help shift perceptions of people with disabilities and inspire others to value their unique potential to contribute.

Coming together to support the LGBT community

SAP employees have been a voice of support for lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual (LGBT) youth, creating an “It Gets Better” video. They have also gone before the camera as “allies” of the LGBT community, giving personal meaning to the ideas of diversity, openness and freedom of expression.

Autism at Work: Our partner’s perspective

We launched our Autism at Work initiative in partnership with Specialisterne, a social business focused on creating jobs for people with autism throughout the world. Thorkil Sonne, founder of Specialisterne and father of a son with autism, believes that SAP is having an impact beyond the jobs we are creating.

Helping to increase the number of women in tech

As we work to support women's success at SAP, we are also acting to bring about broader change. One key focus is encouraging a pipeline of female talent through a variety of programs that help young women chart a path to a technology career. Our goal: creating a world of truly equal opportunity.

Supporting people around the world

Our philosophy of diversity and inclusion extends beyond our offices to communities throughout the world. We make strategic social investments to help people gain access to education and economic opportunity.
