Our Workplace

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are a company of builders who bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of our customers. Our diverse perspectives come from many sources including gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, and professional and life experience. We are committed to diversity and inclusion and always look for ways to scale our impact as we grow.

Inside Amazon
Amazon’s ability to innovate on behalf of our customers relies on the perspectives and knowledge of people from all backgrounds.

We believe that building a culture that is welcoming and inclusive is integral to people doing their best work and is essential to what we can achieve as a company. We actively recruit people from diverse backgrounds to build a supportive and inclusive workplace. We take steps to ensure employees have a sense of belonging, value, and opportunity. This includes publishing our Gender Pay Gap for our total UK workforce each year.

We have 13 affinity groups (employee resource groups) with more than 87,000 employees across hundreds of chapters around the world. We actively recruit diverse candidates through our partnerships with universities, institutions and colleges. We also have initiatives that focus on gender diversity and inclusion, building skills for tech leaders from diverse backgrounds, empowering the next generation with opportunities in STEM programmes, celebrating our LGBT+ community, military initiatives and more.

In the community
Our mission is to make a difference in the world by empowering and supporting our teams to actively build long-lasting solutions to some of society’s biggest challenges.

The Amazon in the Community programme takes a hands-on approach, working alongside community organisations and leveraging Amazon’s unique assets, including our scale, logistics and technology, to help meet the needs of our local communities.

Our technology opens opportunities to entrepreneurs, authors, creators, and builders from all over the word—from individual sellers to small and medium-sized businesses. We work to build long-term partnerships with vendors and sellers who share our vision of advancing toward a more equitable future that improves the lives of people everywhere.

We continue to make progress in building a more diverse workforce, with the number of women in tech roles at Amazon increasing. Today, women lead many of our biggest and most important businesses, including our overall delivery experience, Amazon Fresh, AWS Public Sector, and more.

Around the world
We strive to be a top employer for diverse talent and to make Amazon a place where these leaders want to grow their careers.

We know that representation is critical to accomplishing this goal, and that diverse leaders attract and retain diverse talent. We also continue to invest in programmes, such as our global mentorship programme, which creates more than 6,000 mentorship opportunities every year to actively recruit and help more women advance into senior and technology-focused roles.

The support Amazon provides is one of the reasons we were named one of the Top 10 Companies to Work for by LinkedIn in the UK, U.S., Australia, India, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Japan, and China.
