SAP Women in Tech would like to invite you to a  Young Africans In Tech  session- "Together we rise!" with  Juliet Shali Shambi . Juliet Shali is a senior Solution Advisor at SAP SE, responsible for customer success, growth, and adoption of SAP Human Experience Management (HXM) solutions in Africa. As a seasoned professional with more than 11 years of HR technology experience, Juliet is known for helping organizations redefine employee experiences, drive business transformation and thrive in the experience economy. She is passionate about the people and processes, with in-depth expertise in all relevant processes including, Talent Management & Development, and Employee Experience. She regularly presents and demonstrates cloud migration strategies with SAP SuccessFactors HXM solutions at various conferences and webinars regionally.  In 2019, Juliet was voted one of the most inspiring women in Tech in Coast province in Kenya. She dedicates her extracurricular activities to driving Diversity and Inclusion, primarily for young professional women in tech.  What will be discussed in the session? It wasn’t until Juliet had landed in Europe that she realized that aside from her educational experience, something was missing. A mentor. Years later, she came into tech as a coincidence with no mentorship, no guidance, and with no extraordinary expectations. As a young professional, she had to navigate through the deep tech waters without a compass but with the drive to succeed. Today her legacy as a Woman in Tech is to be known for building bridges and lifting others up. She thrives on empowering and raising the leaders of tomorrow, after all, what is life without the thrill of giving back? Juliet will share with us her journey, struggles, and achievements with the hopes of inspiring others to take a risk and never give up. We would also love to hear your stories! So get your microphones ready and we welcome you to share your experiences and journeys with us in this session, as well as have an open conversation with Juliet and ask her any questions you may have. Juliet is also one of our mentors for the   Young Africans In Tech program, so join the session to hear her story, and if you are inspired, become her mentee! The event is open to all. Date: July 8, 2022 Time: 10:00-11:00 AM CEST Register for the session here!
