Our Glamazon LGBTQ+ Network Helps You Thrive
What is Glamazon?
Glamazon is an Amazon Affinity Group/Employee Network for anyone interested in LGBTQIA+ issues, events, meetings and information. All are welcome; we invite all Amazonians to join us in a community focused on love and gender identities outside the heterosexual, cisgender default.
Glamazon is a vital resource for the LGBTQIA+ community within Amazon, as well as within the broader LGBTQIA+ communities where our chapters exist. As our company continues to grow, Glamazon is growing into a global organization that connects LGBTQIA+ employees to company resources, to each other, and showcases Amazon’s LGBTQIA+ acceptance in our communities across the globe.
•Enable Amazonians to engage with LGBTQIA+ peers and allies across Amazon
•Seek and promote diverse perspectives across geographic lines, identities, job types, and backgrounds
•Support and develop Amazonians by creating social and professional learning opportunities
•Promote Amazon's LGBTQIA+ acceptance in our communities across the globe
•Advocate for internal and external policies that focus on LGBTQIA+ employees' needs
The customer is at the heart of everything we do. Amazon is a place where smart, passionate people obsess over customers and innovate on their behalf. Amazon has created more U.S. jobs in the last decade than any other company. These are jobs that pay an average of $19 per hour, more than double the federal minimum wage. We also invest in employees’ success. Amazon will spend over $1.2 billion to provide free skills training to employees—helping them further their careers in tech and in-demand roles such as cloud computing.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Amazon
We’re in this together—reaching across cultures—creating global tech innovations that unite us in new and exciting ways. Amazon creates inclusive technology that connects our diverse world, disrupting the status quo of how we learn, shop, communicate, work, and live.
From the first book we delivered in 1995 to today’s tech advances we once only imagined, Amazon delivers inclusive experiences and technology to over 60 countries around the world. Together, our employees harness the power of our differences to build a brighter future for each other, our customers, and the community.
Amazon's Global LGBTQIA+ Office
Amazon’s Global LGBTQIA+ Office (GLO) was founded in June of 2022 to advance LGBTQIA+ equity companywide. We partner with key stakeholders across Amazon on program and policy development, community engagement, and other priority initiatives. We work with employees, DEI leads, business partners, and community groups to coordinate across teams, offer subject matter expertise across the company, uplift existing ongoing projects, and create single-threaded leadership on LGBTQIA+ equity companywide.
