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.
Amazon’s Christon Mallett was named as one of 50 LGBT+ Future Leaders 2018 in the FT OUTstanding Role Models 2018 awards. The recognition followed a week after a night of celebration at the Pink News Awards, where Amazon sponsored the Third Sector Equality Award, won by the National Trust.
Amazon and WISE - the campaign for gender balance in science, technology & engineering - have come together to launch new research designed to build a roadmap to help increase female representation in the UK innovation economy.
New guidelines include best practice on issues such as the correct use of names and pronouns and restroom accessibility, were created with Amazon employees from across the company with the aim of supporting transgender staff and their allies.
Diversity as a resource: proudly introducing Glamazon, the Amazon affinity group dedicated to LGBTQ+ employees and allies. Together, they help make Amazon a more open and inclusive workplace every day.
