In 2017, Amazon Women in Engineering in the UK launched the Amazon Early Insights Scheme, a community outreach programme that helps young women develop new technology skills. AWE invited twelve female students in their early years of study to visit Amazon’s Development Centre in Scotland and learn how to build and develop Alexa skills. During the week, students completed a range of workshops, talks, social events and a ‘hackathon’ run by Amazon volunteers. The programme helped to build confidence in the technical skills of the participants, and encourage a career in the field of technology.
