Amazon sponsors worlds largest gathering of women technologists

Amazon sponsors world's largest gathering of women technologists

 September 25, 2018

Amazon celebrated diversity in technology at the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC), the world's largest gathering of women technologists annually.

Amazon, one of GHC's diamond sponsors, was there to offer expert knowledge, support and advice to the thousands of women attending the event. 

"Hosting the world’s largest gathering of women technologists would be impossible without our 2018 sponsors," says the event's organizers.

Offering advice and support

Not only was Amazon a sponsor of the event, but their representatives were on hand to provide insightful career advice, showcase their latest technology and to give the attendees an opportunity to engage with talented Amazon women on a range of exciting topics.

Amazon ran a recruiting booth at the Career Fair so attendees could learn about the ways that Amazon’s culture encourages employees to think big for their customers every day. Advice from such an inclusive employer, like Amazon, is incredibly important in motivating women to pursue their dream career.

Amazon also had a booth at GHC's Technology Showcase along with lots of information about the latest technology behind Amazon's Alexa, AWS, Audible, Music, Prime Air, and the We Power Tech program that works to cultivate under-represented communities in tech.

Twelve women from Amazon addressed the GHC on topics ranging from designing for the human experience, to coaching for development. The women were from a wide range of Amazon departments and services like Amazon Web Services, Delivery Experience, Alexa Shopping, Amazon Lending, Amazon Fashion and Visual Search. The women, all leaders and experts in their fields, enjoyed a presence at GHC and helped to reinforce the positive benefits that women can achieve working in tech industries.

"We're ready for a full week of celebrating diversity in technology at #AmazonGHC18," Amazon had anounced ahead of the event

Helping women achieve their dreams

Amazon's support and presence at GHC was vital in helping support a vision for the future where people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it. Most importantly, GHC and Amazon motivated women technologists to grow their careers, achieve their dreams and ambitions, and prove there's no such thing as "impossible".
