Amazon Prime Now hosted a Tech Leadership Networking & Speaker Event: Amazon Women in Tech Talk "Cocktails, Innovation, & The Art of Risk Taking" Mixer & Speaker Series.
Below are photos and testimonials from the fabulous event!
“This event was really special in ways I don’t usually see at woman events. An development engineering female of 25 years came up to tell me that this was one of the best woman in tech events she has ever been to because it was about building a community of woman not just hiring for one role.” – Thanks S., Amazon employee
“What a great event last night. Congratulations and thanks for bringing all of us together to share stories and as you said 'lift each other up'. I would like to keep this communication channel open." -Seema, attendee
“Thank you for inviting me and for coordinating such a wonderful event for non tech and tech women who are juggling and multitasking careers, family and volunteer passions. All the speakers had a unique story to share and please convey my thanks to them for sharing their personal life with all of us. It resonated so much with my life and career, where we women mostly put others before our need. Felt good to hear that it is OK to put one's own needs in balance. Would love to stay connected with you for the women group and the variety of Amazon career paths." - Ansuya, attendee
"Thank you so much for inviting me to last night's Amazon event! It was a pleasure meeting you and connecting with women from the OC area. I was really impressed with the panel and loved the keynote! After talking few Amazon employees last night, I am interested in career opportunities at Amazon." - Karen, attendee
“Thanks so much for the invitation to the Amazon Tech Talk Networking mixer. It was a lovely event where I got to meet other women in Tech and rub elbows with the Amazon family! I really enjoyed myself and see Amazon could be a great fit for my skill-set, interests, passion and culture. I met some really great folks such as Stephen, Mike Goodman and even Dave's wife who told me all about their 5 kids. Holy smokes! Now that's a job :) ….. I connected with the keynote story as being a driven and direct (although kind person) can be misinterpreted along with having to learn balance. The stories of all the women were powerful, relatable and inspiring. Thank you for giving them a platform and a voice to encourage the room. I enjoyed meeting the Amazon team and would love to explore where you think I would be a great fit in the organization. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you." - Mary Ann, attendee
“Thank you so much for hosting such an amazing and inspiring event yesterday. It was totally worth the drive from San Diego. Also it was a pleasure meeting you in person. I made some good connections not only from Amazon but from the other industries too. Also thank you so much for the tip on leading with what you know vs what you don't know. That is very valuable advice." - Michelle, attendee
“I hope this message finds you well! Thanks so much for reaching out to me in regard to last night's Women in Tech Talk. It was incredible to hear the stories of so many women at Amazon who are making a positive impact in their respective areas. I really enjoyed having an opportunity to network with women from a variety of industries and sectors and am so pleased to see the community that is being forged in Orange County I look forward to staying connected." - Ashanntí, attendee
