We have made year-over-year progress, and we will continue to strive for better representation across our company.
See below for a four-year trend of our global gender and U.S. race and ethnicity data as of December 31, 2022.
At Amazon, we are a company of builders who bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of our customers. Our diverse perspectives come from many sources, including gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, and professional and life experience. However, we recognize that categorizing identity can be falsely limiting and miss important nuances within broader demographic categories. That is why we have implemented a new “plus” or “+” methodology designed to give our employees more choices to self-select one or more categories. This Self-ID process allows Amazon to gather more inclusive global data on race, gender, and other identities to help give us a more detailed picture of our workforce.
A review of the compensation awarded in 2022 at Amazon, including base, cash bonuses, and stock, shows that women globally and in the U.S. earned 99.6 cents and 99.5 cents, respectively, for every dollar that men earned performing the same jobs, and minorities in the U.S. earned 99.5 cents for every dollar that white employees earned performing these same jobs. We continue to prioritize pay equity.
Note: Employees included in these data are those for whom gender, race, or ethnicity has been identified. Amazon recognizes gender is not binary. Historically underrepresented communities refer to Women, Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Multiracial, and Indigenous peoples as groups whose representation in tech has been historically low.
