Change doesn’t just happen – we have to make it happen. At AWS, we’re changing the conversation around diversity in tech by empowering every builder to get involved and collaborate on creative ways to strengthen our culture and inclusivity.

How we're taking action to make change happen:

Inclusive to the core

We’ve made inclusive hiring training a standard for our recruiters and hiring managers, and the AWS Inclusion Ambassadors program has more than 7,000 ambassadors promoting and fostering a culture of inclusion.

Welcoming diverse talent
We've invested in alternative hiring pipelines like our HBCU partnerships, AWS Returners, and the AWS Military Apprentice Program in order to connect with outstanding candidates and bring new perspectives to our team.

A community for everyone
AWS has a huge array of employee-led and leadership-supported affinity groups that make it easy for our builders to connect and network with others who share their passions, experiences, challenges, and interests.

How we're focusing on the future:

Committed to creating opportunity

There are countless opportunities for development and learning at AWS. We support personal and professional growth though upskilling, training, mentorship, and internal job mobility so everyone can grow where they want to grow.

Impact beyond our walls
Programs like AWS Educate, AWS re/Start, AWS Academy, and many more focus on making cloud training and skills development available to students, educators, and people with no technology background.

Connecting in the community
We’ve created programs like AWS Girls’ Tech Day and AWS InCommunities to engage young women and girls pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects and support local STEM initiatives.

Our Mission

Our mission: To be Earth's most customer-centric company.

What unites Amazonians across teams and geographies is that we are all striving to delight our customers and make their lives easier. The scope and scale of our mission drives us to seek diverse perspectives, be resourceful, and navigate through ambiguity. Inventing and delivering things that were never thought possible isn't easy, but we embrace this challenge every day.

By working together on behalf of our customers, we are building the future one innovative product, service, and idea at a time.

Community

Here at AWS, we believe in creating opportunities.

Here are some ways we are investing in underrepresented and early career talent in our communities:

AWS Impact Accelerator - Investing more than $30 million over the next 3 years to early stage startups led by Black, women, Latino, and LGTBQIA founders.

All Builders Welcome re:Invent Grant - Offering underrepresented technologists in the first five years of their careers a complimentary trip to AWS re:Invent.

AWS AI & ML Scholarship Program - Providing hands-on learning, scholarships, and mentorship to underserved and underrepresented high school and college students.

AWS re/Start - Preparing unemployed and underemployed individuals for cloud careers through classroom-based training as well as resume and interview coaching.

Core Values

Our Leadership Principles aren’t just pretty, inspirational wall hangings. These Principles work hard, just like we do. Our builders use them every day, whether they’re discussing new projects, deciding on the best solution for a customer’s problem, or interviewing candidates. We pride ourselves in our peculiar culture. We honor and respect the differences inherent in each builder, and we seek to include those perspectives as we develop new products and services for our global customers.
