At SAP, we care about women’s equality – in fact, we all need to care about this topic. Why? While it is one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – Goal 5: “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.“ - it is much more than that: gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.
Research studies have proven that it is essential for companies and their leaders to foster diverse teams if they want to be successful.
