Tech for a Better World: AWS Powers Customers Building a More Equitable Future

Connecting Underrepresented Communities with Tech Careers

AWS is dedicated to building the next generation of technical leaders by providing our communities with broader access to STEM education, including adults who are interested in transitioning to technical careers. So far, we’ve invested $50 million to support the creation of STEM-focused programs at AWS and partner organizations. We also just announced our intent to help 29 million people around the world grow their technical skills with free cloud computing training by 2025. Here are some of the other programs we power.

Where we are. And where we’re headed.

AWS is committed to having a diverse workforce not just because it allows us to continue driving innovation for our customers, but because it’s also the right thing to do for our employees. We want our builders to know their voices and opinions are heard, to see themselves at every level in our organization, and above all else, to feel a sense of belonging here. Our current initiatives and goals will further our efforts to remove racial bias, increase representation, and foster a more inclusive and accessible workplace.
