Amazon’s Represent the Future Summit is Back

SPONSORED by AMAZON

Amazon’s second annual virtual career enrichment experience to uplift Black, Latinx, and Native American professionals of all backgrounds and levels of experience is happening August 24th & 25th! 

At AMIGOS, our #1 focus is the empowerment and uplift of OUR Latinx communities. We are constantly looking for ways to bring positive assets and opportunities to all of you. So, when Amazon announced they were bringing back the upcoming “Represent the Future Summit”, we knew we wanted to again partner in getting the word out and connecting our audience to this great opportunity. We spoke to Erin Dowell, who is Amazon’s Global Leader, Diversity Conferences, about the Summit, how it did last year and their continuing commitment to the Latinx community.

Hello Erin. We’re excited to talk to you today. Can you start by telling us a little about yourself and your role at Amazon?

Thank you for having me. I’ve been the leader of Global Events in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion organization at Amazon after (virtually) attending Represent the Future in 2020. oversee the strategic vision and execution of our external events, and I’m responsible for ensuring these experiences are authentic and inclusive for diverse customers, which ultimately strengthens Amazon’s brand trust and standing as an employer of choice in diverse communities worldwide.

Amazing. Tell me, was last year’s Summit a success?

My personal story is a great testimony to the power of this program. This time last year, I was attending Represent the Future as a prospective candidate and today, I’m here talking to you.

WOW! What an empowering. story. What I love is that you are doing more than just talking the talk, you are really is walking the walk. Can you talk a little about the Summit? What it is and why it is important?

We are very excited about the return of this event. Amazon is hosting its second Represent the Future summit on August 24-25, 2021. Represent the Future is a free, virtual career enrichment experience, designed to uplift Black, Latinx, and Native American/Indigenous professionals. The Summit will offer two days of speakers and sessions highlighting Amazon’s global business ecosystem, customer-obsessed culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion and the role innovation, invention, and intrapreneurship play in building the future. It’s going to amazing.

As a DEA&I professional, you must realize how research shows many Latinx individuals say they don’t feel “included” at their place of work, like they “don’t belong.” How does Amazon address this?

At Amazon, we strive to be a top employer for diverse talent and acknowledge that it is up to us to make Amazon a place where these leaders want to grow their careers. We know that representation is critical to accomplishing this goal of a truly diverse and inclusive workplace. Diverse leaders build diverse teams – therefore, our focus is on representation at all levels within Amazon.

Erin, this has been great. How can our audience participate?
