Our Leadership Principles
Building an Inclusive Culture
We are a company of builders who bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of all customers.
Our diverse perspectives are enriched by many dimensions, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, culture, language, and education, as well as professional and life experience.
We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and leveraging our unique perspectives to scale our impact and grow.
Our diverse identities help define who we are as Amazonians
Amazon’s ability to innovate on behalf of our global customers and communities is dependent upon the skills, perspectives, and knowledge of people from all backgrounds. We believe that building a welcoming and inclusive culture is essential to people doing their best work, and what we can achieve as a company. We actively recruit individuals from diverse backgrounds and foster an inclusive workplace. We take steps to ensure employees have a sense of belonging, feel valued, and have the opportunity to succeed and thrive.
