Amazon prides itself on its peculiar culture. It honors and respects the differences inherent in each Amazonian, and it seeks to include those perspectives as it develops new products and services for its customers around the world. In addition, it strives to create a sense of community among employees of various backgrounds in order to foster engagement and innovation. People at Amazon share their perspective on whether inclusion is necessary for diverse ideas to exist and grow.

Neha Goswami, Senior Manager at Amazon

"Diversity is a very broad term. It doesn't just include diversity in gender, race or ethnicity. It includes diversity in experience, education and skills. Having diverse teams allows us to think creatively when we're thinking of different ways of solving a problem. To date I'm still encouraged to take risks. I can't ask for a better way to grow my skills and my career."

Eli Yoffe, Senior Manager at Amazon

"I think diversity is a fundamental strength of every progressive society and company. I think it helps innovate faster and think bigger."

Tania San Miguel-Bounds, Senior Customer Advisor 

"Inclusion is necessary for diverse ideas to exist and grow. Inclusion and diversity combined is what allows innovation. Amazon is a place where you can feel empowered to share your voice without fear of failure you can bring your own unique special talent and abilities and also have fun."

Mario Marin, Head of Sales at Amazon

"I think diversity and inclusion enhances our ability to differentiate ourselves from the rest of the marketplace. Diversity brings and encourages new ideas and you never know where you're gonna get them. Inclusion removes those barriers so those ideas take hold and evolve."
