Women In Industry Event with Amazon

Amazon believes in delivering real progress for women in the workplace by putting the right structures in place for the future and igniting organisational change. With a vision to develop a balanced workforce in which every individual brings a unique perspective to the workplace, Amazon offers women equal opportunities to unlock their full potential while empowering them to do more.

From their recruitment processes through to inclusive programs and trainings, Amazon fosters a culture of opportunity and equality in everything it does – which is why our partnership is the perfect synergy!

We are proud to launch our first-ever partnership with Amazon to support women in the MENA region via our networking and educational event.  The virtual event will be hosted on 22nd September at 12pm UAE time. We will be inspired with stories from leaders within the business, who will share their journeys to success, together with an overview of Amazon’s inclusive leadership principles which drive diversity and inclusion throughout the organisation. In addition, we will gather practical advice on how the Amazon recruitment process works, which will undoubtedly provide you with an advantage if you aspire to be a part of Amazon in the future!

We will also hold an interactive Q&A with the Amazon leaders and hiring managers, where all attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. The Amazon team will also review attendees’ CV’s and connect with relevant profiles for future positions.
