  • 4. © 2015 SAP SE. All rights reserved. 4 LGBT Rights in the USA in 2016 ENDA: Employment Non-Discrimination Act SAP’s support strives to rectify this situation: It is legal to be fired for being gay in 28 states; for being transgender in 31 states For example, in Pennsylvania it is legal to be fired for being gay or transgender Reference: Wikipedia Via Out & Equal Workplace Advocates: As the LGBT community celebrates a historic win with the right to marry across the United States, companies are also asking what, if anything, this means for them. LGBT Americans are still not protected in the workplace in 28 states based on sexual orientation, and in 31 based on gender identity. In nearly 80 countries it is illegal to be LGBT. This means that couples who now have the right to marry in the United States could be fired for doing so, or imprisoned if traveling outside the country for work.

  • 7. © 2015 SAP SE. All rights reserved. 7 Pride@SAP North America – Our Role MAJOR GOAL Under the umbrella of Global Pride@SAP, make the North America region a great place to work for current and future LGBT employees, thus helping achieve SAP and SAP customers’ vision and objectives. OBJECTIVES Raise awareness with leaders, managers and employees of the business value of full inclusion, why authenticity is key, and how to create a fair, safe and comfortable working environment for the North America-based LGBT SAP team members and their supporters. Support Global Pride@SAP in doing the same. Provide an open, safe, and fun social and networking forum in Silicon Valley for self-identified LGBT employees and supporters, and help enable other locations to do the same. Working together inclusively, give back to Labs North America and our communities, helping to support and enrich the goal of diversity in North America and SAP as a whole with our activities. Our activities support these objectives.
