The tech giant’s Cambridge development centre is backing the 2018 DevelopHER awards, which will return to their home city of Norwich in November.

Now in their fourth year, the awards comprise 14 categories celebrating female achievement in tech, one of which will be sponsored by Amazon.

Catherine Breslin, applied science manager for Alexa Machine Learning in the Amazon Cambridge Development Centre, said: “We’re delighted to be backing the DevelopHER awards this year, which play an important role in inspiring and recognising the success of women working in technology across East Anglia.”

DevelopHER founder Vickie Allen added: “Amazon does lots of exciting things in the East Anglia area, so we’re thrilled to get them involved in the DevelopHER 2018 Awards.”

The DevelopHER Awards will be held at Open in Norwich on November 28. Nominations are open until September 3 – go to developherawards.com/awards.
