Diversity Programs & Initiatives

Amazon’s mission is to be the Earth’s most customer-centric company, and this mission is central to our work in diversity and inclusion. Our customers are diverse and we know we serve them better having and building diverse teams. Our diverse perspectives help us push each other to think bigger, and differently, about the products and services that we build for our customers and the day-to-day nature of our workplace. We want our employees and the communities we operate in to embrace that we are all human, we are all different, and we are all equal. Coming into work, every Amazonian should feel comfortable sharing their unique perspectives and seeking out the perspectives of others – this

From improving sleep for millions to customizing a Disney resort experience - there’s a team for that. You know the products. You likely even own one or two (or ten). From Kindle to Alexa to the new Halo Rise, Amazon’s impressive slate of devices is even more vast and innovative than you realize. This fall, Amazon’s Devices & Services announced an array of new products, as well as exciting updates to existing ones. The tech giant has carefully curated all of these releases under a new concept, called “Ambient Intelligence” - technology that works (quietly) in the background to intuitively meet the needs of customers and enable them to live their lives to the fullest. Hundreds of people worked collaboratively for years to make these enhancements, and we caught up with a few to talk shop about this new direction.
