Diversity champion Amazon supported the Grace Hopper Celebration in Orlando, the largest gathering of women technologists, by offering expert knowledge, support and advice to the thousands of women attending the event. 

Attendees got the opportunity to hear from Amazonian speakers and stop by Amazon's booth at the career fair to discover how employees think big for Amazon customers every day.

Offering valuable advice for women in tech

During the event, Amazon representatives were on hand to provide insightful career advice, showcase their latest technology and 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.

Encouraging women's participation in tech

The Grace Hopper Celebration is held in partnership with AnitaB.org, a non-profit social enterprise that envisions a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for which they build it. The event aims to encourage women’s participation in technology by growing community; strengthening collective, diverse voices; fostering inclusion and inspiring action.

"Thank you to all of those who participated!" says Amazon
