Women’s Day Celebration and Hackathon at SRKR Engineering College, AP, 8 March 2016
We are very excited to share with you about the recent engagement at an SAP University Alliances member college – SRKR Engineering College, Andhra Pradesh on the occasion on Women’s Day Celebration. The main objective of the event was to motivate women students to pursue professional careers after completing their education as most students in that region would opt not to join the workforce. This event was meant to make the women students realize that when they already are doing so great in academics then there should be no reason why they can’t grow in a corporate environment. The university feels that women student must realize their potential to contribute to the national economics.
We put in place two engagements at this event only for women students.
The hackathon had great outcomes from the 2 teams (8 students in total) who jointly shared the 1st position. They will be given the opportunity to directly appear for Fulltime/ Internship interviews under the Diversity Hiring drive.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mangala Seshadri and Muthuram Govindarasu who ensured that we had a wonderful keynote speaker/ chief guest for the event and for helping us with the experts Pranitha and Sreedevi to plan and execute the hackathon on SAP Lumira. We thank Manjusha Nair and Meetha Maheshkumar for their support and guidance to bring the initiative in line with the D&I charter. Finally – thank you so much Dharani, Sreedevi and Pranitha for a great collaboration/ event/ camaraderie /… and we look forward to more such collaborations between SAP Labs colleagues, Early Talent and SAP University Alliances!
