Ramat Tejani

Ramat is passionate about empowering individuals and businesses to tell stories that make a difference and inspire action.

Her experience across a variety of sectors including recruitment, charity, design and technology; has helped her developed a unique understanding of the best way to tell stories.

Ramat currently leads Amazon Web Services AWS GetIT programme, a social initiative designed to inspire more young people, in particular girls, to consider a career in technology. The programme also works to empower current female technology talent to use their voices as diversity advocates within the tech industry. Prior to joining AWS, Ramat worked as a Marketing Manager at the GSMA. Whilst there she on top of her day-to-day responsibilities she also led a team to support the ITU (a United Nations agency) in their International Girls in ICT Day initiative. Working in a trade association, Ramat saw an opportunity for the GSMA to lead by example and show the telecommunications industry how to encourage not just women but the next generation of young girls who have yet to consider ICT or who would like to have more exposure to it. In total, over 15 internal and external stakeholders worked on the day to impact the lives of 546 girls across 7 global sites. Earlier this year Ramat was shortlisted for the Women in Tech award for the e-skills initiative of the year award as recognition of her efforts.

Outside of her day job, Ramat is a keen advocate of women empowerment and is a freelance career coach. In this capacity, she uses her personal experiences to motivate and guide women through their career transitions and progressions. Ramat is also the founder of “The Inspiration Box”, a platform creating online and offline spaces that ignite curiosity within people and reminds individuals that the possibilities in life are endless.
