Women in SAP – It’s a Celebration


Working at SUSE, I come across a lot of wonderful women. They are my co-workers, my partners, and my customers. They each bring tremendous intellect and work ethic to the table and it’s been a joy getting to know each of them .  They are – Women in Tech.

Each year, International Women’s Month celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.  SUSE had some wonderful celebrations this year with many sessions from influential women who told great stories about their careers in Tech. That inspired me to create an eBook featuring some of the wonderful women who work in SAP. Why SAP? The focus is SAP because that’s a big specialty of ours – helping SAP customers succeed anywhere, in your data center, or in the cloud.

This Women in SAP eBook is a collection of interviews and career advice from women in the SAP trenches. I hope you enjoy these stories and that they inspire more women to join us in technology careers that enrich all our lives and change the world.

Here is a selection of some of the great advice these women passed on for advancing your career in tech:

Sherry says: Be vocal and stand up for yourself. Whether it’s fair or not, women who want their voices heard DO need to work harder at it. But if you put in the effort and persist, you will succeed.

Cristina says: Don’t be intimidated by ERP software or SAP’s history. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can learn the software, the business and the history. It’s the skills that make you uniquely human that SAP needs most now.

Anna M says: Network, network, network. With college graduates, I’d say be proactive and be persistent. Stay in front of the key individuals that will help expand your career.

Tina says: Always have the confidence that you can pick up new technology fast. I believe that as long as you are a logical thinker, you put in the work, you will be able to pick up any new technology – yes tech changes fast in our industry, but don’t be intimated, stay on top of the industry always.

Angela says: Find a mentor and be a mentor. Being a minority in technology definitely comes with challenges and having a mentor can be a great way to help you overcome them.
