Inspired by the leadership at SAP

Last fall, when SAP joined us as the Presenting Sponsor at the Heroes Run, we had the opportunity to meet many of the incredible people who work at SAP as they volunteered at our event. One volunteer in particular stood out, and two weeks ago, we had the pleasure to spend the afternoon at the SAP offices in Palo Alto, and boy were we inspired!

Upon arriving to SAP, we had lunch and the opportunity to spend time with the very impressive, Ferose V.R. Not only is Ferose the Senior Vice-President of Globalization Services for SAP Labs, but he is also the author of Gifted, a wonderful book that celebrates the inspiring stories of people with disabilities.

Over lunch we shared in great conversation and among other things, especially enjoyed talking about exploring Silicon Valley’s relative generosity and the way nonprofits operate. Having recently moved her from India, Ferose was particularly interested in gaining insight on how philanthropy is a part of our culture here in the valley.

After lunch, we had the opportunity to go on a tour of the Innovation Center on SAP’s Palo Alto Campus – what a great work environment and culture to get to see.

Thank you to Ferose, and the wonderful team at SAP who we continue to enjoy our ongoing partnership with!
