Amazon champions women-owned businesses
Women lead some of our largest and most innovative businesses. In the spirit of celebrating women who lead, innovate, and uplift others, we are proud to announce a year-long partnership with International Women's Day, and we’re highlighting stories of Amazonians who positively impact the workplace. Amazon is also launching a first-of-its-kind collaboration with fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg to champion the success of women-owned small businesses.
See some of the ways that we’re celebrating women through March, and every day.
