SAP announces increase of women in management from 18% to 25% by 2017


The Executive Board of SAP announced the 25 May at its Annual General Meeting in Mannheim the increase of women in SAP management from 18% to 25% by the end of 2017.

Co-CEO Jim Hageman Schnabe stressed that SAP will also make even greater conscious efforts to recruit women to SAP. There will be more targeted support and encouragement to women with high potential. Professional development and mentoring programs will have a crucial part to play. And, more than ever before, SAP will act to retain women who are in leadership positions. Last but not least, SAP will make sure all of its managers actively support this objective.
'This is a very important task for us, as this aspect of diversity is a key driver of the SAP innovation strategy.'
