Diversity and inclusion
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.

Diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our products and services, and help us better serve customers, selling partners, content creators, employees, and community stakeholders from every background. We are constantly learning and iterating, whether through central programs or work within our business teams, through programs that are local, regional, and global.

Hiring the best talent

Amazon works to identify the best possible talent from all backgrounds. To develop future generations of talent, we are committed to holistic strategies that support K-12, higher education, and students who are underrepresented in the tech industry.

Building an inclusive culture

Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Our workforce data

Representation matters. We track the representation of women and underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities because we know that diversity helps us build better teams that are obsessed over our global customer base.

Affinity groups

Amazon has 12 affinity groups, also known as employee resource groups, which bring Amazonians together across businesses and locations around the world. Some examples include the Black Employee Network (BEN), Amazon Women in Engineering (AWE), and Indigenous@.

Through our technology, Amazon enables our sellers, creators, and builders from all backgrounds opportunities to follow their passion and find their best future.
