At Amazon Web Services (AWS) Ramat leads the AWS GetIT education programme in the UK and Ireland. It is designed to inspire young students aged between 12 and 13, especially girls, to consider a career in tech, by challenging them to design an app which could help their school or local community. AWS GetIT simultaneously empowers female talent within the business to build confidence and leadership skills through a 10-month executive speaker training program. The women, known as AWS GetIT ambassadors, go on to use some of the skills they learn to mentor students at the schools involved in the school stream of the AWS GetIT programme. This year Ramat increased the total number of AWS GetIT ambassadors to over 150 women, from across a variety of business units. For Amazon UK’s Black Employee Network, and in collaboration with the Women@AmazonUK, Ramat curated a series of financial wellbeing workshops, after recognizing the importance of financial literacy especially for women.
