To facilitate and encourage more female students to plan a carrier within the SAP Community – SAP University Alliances will and are running a number of initiatives to engage female students. The SAP University Alliances Team has rolled out education on SAP and SAPs innovation technology platform to more than 650.000 students globally, 30% of whom are female students at more than 1330 universities.

The engagement with the students are e.g. facilitated via an amazing number of events and contestsmore than 170 events has already been executed in the first 4 month of 2013, InnoJams, CodeJams, Start-Ups, Design Slams, lectures, seminars and other events as well as contestsmany of which are targeted exclusive at female students – a good example being the recently conducted SAP HANA CodeJam in MENA at Zayed University and HCT Women´s Campus in Dubai.

We also have some great interviews from the event – Amala Rajan, Shaikha Ali, Marwa AlMeeza, Maitha AlMulla from Higher Colleges of Technology in Dubai. I will also like to mention “Day of Girls” which was executed at 10 universities (1700 participants) in Hungarian recently. Many more initiativer are in the process of being roll-out:

  • Dedicated CodeJams, Design Slams and Start-ups for female students
  • SAP female students mentor programs

Many of the initatives will be supported by SAP Business Women Network which is a  network that provides opportunities for women to share their professional insight, mentor and support other women. Watch what makes Women run better at SAP.

We will also be launching a special corner for our female students on SCN where all activities and programs for female students will be posted.
