We are building on our existing diversity programmes to launch Amazon Amplify - a new programme designed to both further increase the number of women in tech and innovation roles across the UK business and help inspire the next generation of female innovators.
Dame Athene Donald, Professor of Experimental Physics and Master of Churchill College at the University of Cambridge, kicked off a new season of the external speaker series at the Amazon Development Centre in Cambridge this week.
The Amazon Women in Innovation Bursary offers funding of between £3,500 and £7,500 per year to a female student attending one of the three universities neighbouring our three UK Development Centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London.
Using augmented reality technologies to make science more accessible and fun for children and adults alike is the mission of Curiscope, the startup founded by Brighton-based Ed Barton and Ben Kidd. Thanks to Amazon Launchpad, Curiscope is making kids all over the world fall in love with anatomy through its interactive t-shirts.
