We are delighted to announce that Amazon’s commitment to helping women succeed in the technology industry has been recognised with a Tech Employer of the Year 2019 Award by Women in Tech.
Why Amazon supports women in tech
As a customer-centric and innovation-focused business, we have always believed that supporting and celebrating female tech talent within our diverse workforce has been key to success.
Amazon is a proud partner of the WISE Campaign, which encourages women and girls to value and pursue science, technology, engineering and maths-related courses in school, college or later on in their careers. Research we commissioned with WISE, found that a 10% increase of women in STEM careers would boost UK businesses by £3bn per year, illustrating the powerful social and economic impact of a more gender diverse workforce.
