Kuran Williams

As a leader within SAP’s Black employee network, Kuran has created virtual programming to further develop, educate, retain, and enhance opportunities for upward mobility of ethnic minority employees. Topics include, but are not limited to, how to create development plans, how to have a development conversation with your manager, how to assess your skills and gaps, and how to position yourself for a promotion, and the value of mentors and sponsors. Kuran helped co-organise a community service event with the Knowledge is Power Atlanta Collegiate High School (KIPP) where 30 minority students were able to come to SAP’s Buckhead office, work with SAP’s software to create and pitch a value proposition that would make their school better.  Additionally,  Kuran has mentored countless ethnic minority employees and women within SAP. Outside of work, Kuran is a STEM advocate within the African American Community. He has presented to I am A RoleModel, and told his story to a group of MBA and Undergraduate students at Delaware State University, as well as mentoring students from Morehouse College, his Alma mater. In 2018, Kuran was the recipient of the 2017 North America Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion award at SAP.
