Work bio

Short

Moya Watson is a product manager for SAP Cloud Platform at SAP. In her work, she enjoys fostering digital innovation that helps inspire fellow humans to be and express exactly who they are both through using technology and through personal expression.

Tall

Moya has been working in the software industry in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1991. Since 2001 at SAP, she has continually enjoyed forging innovative approaches to communication of all kinds, from standard documentation to technical documentation to collaborative experimental platforms. Currently a product manager for SAP Cloud Platform, she has the best job because she gets to work with and publicly appreciate the community of people who use the product. As head of SAP’s North America LGBT organization, she led a company-wide initiative in 2012 to create and release It Gets Better: SAP Employees with significant internal and external impact, after which she was honored to become a longstanding SAP Mentor.

In tandem with her work at SAP, Moya is passionate about the potential that online organizing brings to the causes of social justice and equality. And everywhere, she is interested in particular in the vast spaces between formal messaging and raw expression. She blogs for work on the SAP Community (https://people.sap.com/moya.watson/) and personally, though more rarely lately, at https://moyawatson.com/. You can find her on Twitter most days — at @moyalynne.

  1. Haha, I came across your blog looking up Jicama Allergies also. Just a note of interest: Jicama is a Legume so it could cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to Legumes like peas, peanuts, lentils, and other Legumes. My 5 year old is very allergic to all nuts and some legumes which is what led me to your page.

  2. Ms. Watson,

    I am compiling all of the e-mail addresses from the Harvey Milk Family Literacy evenings with The Jazz & Democracy Project®, and I cannot read the e-mail address you provided. Would you mind writing me an e-mail at the address above so I can keep in touch about J&D?

    Thanks–and I hope to see you on the 15th!

    “Dr. Wes”
