Discussion

Jason Cao: How does SAP protect LGBT employees in countries where they may be persecuted?

Moya Watson: @jason, on a case-by-case basis i have heard stories of SAP HR helping people move out of situations/countries in which you can be persecuted or killed for being gay.

Moya Watson: it’s tricky for sure.

Moya Watson: for example: SAP has an office in Moscow.

Moya Watson: Do we abide by “SAP law” or do we abide by “Russia law”? they appear to be at odds.
Moya Watson: SAP internally makes it clear that we have one culture and one set of protections that don’t differ between countries — however…

Moya Watson: there are ‘regional opt-outs’

Moya Watson: this is where the influence and subtlety of global corporate leaders cannot be understated.

Moya Watson: Benioff walks a very obvious walk here. sap is more subtle.

Jason Cao: Joe Fox is a big advocate at SAP for Autism at Work program
