A former english teacher of mine once told me that she believes that schools which
educated separately the genders resulted in stronger (more successful) women. That would be
proved women after when entering jobs, and the same wouldn’t happen for the other gender.
I had later looked for veracity of facts through internet, but I soon gave up because
it does not seem to make sense.
As people management I have reported to more female people than males, including others
companies I worked for before SAP. There were 6 women and 3 men, but in very professional
companies as I have been the different genders really did not matter. I think
diversity thought is going to make changes regarding products. Because the diversity of
culture, ethnicity, gender, ages causes people to deal with very different
perspectives and providing new results.
It should be embraced by all companies nowadays which aims for innovation.
What I enjoy most in SAP is that diversity is not restricted for
creating better products but foster people which in turn will result in better products.
