Mariangela Marseglia is Amazon's first female country manager in Europe. At Amazon's EU head office in Luxembourg, Mariangela discussed diversity and inclusion at Amazon and the fantastic opportunities available for women.

Be who you are

Mariangela's talk was part of Amazon's fireside chat, where 70 Amazonians had the opportunity to learn and engage with the company's female leaders. 

During her talk, Mariangela explained how she grew at Amazon and challenged herself through different roles. She also led a discussion on how women should break stereotypes and be firm in their resolve.

“Being diverse means being who you are. And don’t be afraid to be who you are,” said Mariangela. 

Tackling unconscious bias

Mariangela also emphasised the importance of recognising and tackling unconscious bias, in terms of personality, gender, race and so on.

“Diversity is enriching for all of us. The unconscious bias exists; it is connected to human nature. We need to be intentional regarding females,” said Mariangela.

Mariangela explained how she has adopted a new work methodology building on her strengths. She also recommended emotional intelligence.

“Amazon offers very diverse set of opportunities if you’re willing to embrace change," adds Mariangela. "One shouldn't be afraid of working in the unknown."
