2015 is shaping up to be a big year for Women at SAP! Already, it started with a hugely successful networking event led by Chief Learning Officer Jenny Dearborn and P&I Chief Operating Officer Tanja Rueckert and the Business Women’s Network (BWN) with more than 80 women participating.
Get ready to mark your calendars! Here’s a quick snapshot of all that’s planned so far this year for women at SAP Silicon Valley:
Wednesday, February 4 – In partnership with KQED and BWN, SAP Silicon Valley is brining KQED’s empowering documentary series, “MAKERS: Women Who Make America – Women in Business”, to our Palo Alto Campus.

Quarterly BWN Networking Receptions and lunch time speakers – Building off the success of our Q1 networking event, we are working to bring similar programs to our Silicon Valley Offices. Also, be on the lookout for monthly lunchtime speakers.
Wardrobe for Opportunity Professional Clothing Drive – Last year, we collected more than five racks and eight boxes of professional clothing to be donated to Wardrobe for Opportunity. This year, let’s beat that number! Stay tuned for more information on upcoming clothing drives.
This is just a snapshot of all we have going on at SAP in the first half of the year. If you have any questions or would like any more information on BWN or any of the events listed above, contact Kellie Drenner.
