Community Organisation (Disability)
AmazonPwD was established by employees to help make Amazon a more diverse and inclusive place to work, while also reflecting the diversity of our customers. It’s open to employees with disabilities and allies. The group empowers employees through raising awareness, supporting career development, participating in community outreach and improving access for Amazon employees and customers.
The UK chapter was launched in May 2018 as part of Global Accessibility Awareness. Since then the group has steadily grown and run multiple events for its members. These include diversity and inclusion talks about people with disabilities and inclusive design. Taster British Sign Language lessons in London, Mental Health awareness talks and a hackathon for British Heart Foundation which included CPR lessons for attendees and other staff.
