Diversity and Inclusion

At SAP, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is critical to our success.

Inclusive Culture

To thrive as an intelligent enterprise, we need an inclusive culture that empowers people to run at their best, enables the many voices at SAP to create a greater sense of community, and promotes accountability for inclusion and collaboration. 

We recognize that everyone at SAP contributes to our diversity, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, nationality, etc. To leverage our collective diversity, we are building inclusive processes and structures to encourage behaviors that support the growth and development of all employees. A diverse team is more effective in addressing the needs of SAP’s global customers and partners, and inclusive culture brings people together to foster innovation.

In addition to Best Workplace Awards for women, diversity, workplace, disability inclusion, and the World’s Best list, SAP is proud to be named a Stonewall Top Global Employer for the second year in a row in 2019 for LGBT inclusion. The company also achieved a 100% score on the Disability Equality Index® (DEI) in 2019. In 2020, SAP was selected for the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the second straight year. 

Inclusive Leaders

At SAP, we know all employees have a role to play in building and maintaining an inclusive culture. 

Leaders are held accountable for inclusive hiring and inclusive behaviors, and we are committed to relentlessly pursuing our goal to increase the percentage of women in executive or in leadership positions in addition to reaching full gender parity for all levels. Through new frameworks, enablement materials, inclusive leadership training, and an accountability model for leaders, our leaders are force-multipliers when it comes to inclusive capabilities.

Employee network groups (ENGs) include the Business Women's Network, Pride@SAP, the Black Employee Network, Cultures@SAP, and Latinos@SAP.
