Aisha Suleiman

As an Education Program Manager for Amazon Web Services, Aisha guides educational institutions in EMEA through the journey of teaching cloud computing skills using the AWS Educate Program.

The cloud computing industry grows each year and at the same time, the skills gap continues to grow, creating additional demand for students to learn foundational cloud concepts.

This year she launched the AWS Educate Challenge, an inter-university challenge where students from universities across the UK and Ireland will compete to win prizes while building their cloud computing skills.

Aisha is also the Founder and Chair of the Amazon's Black Employee Network (BEN) in the UK. BEN supports Amazon with diversity and inclusion by championing the diverse perspectives of people of African and Caribbean descent and providing a support network for black employees at Amazon. Since BEN's launch in 2017, Amazon UK celebrates Black History Month yearly, a mentoring program for students from black and ethnic minority backgrounds has been launched as well as the first virtual conference on race and ethnicity in Europe.

Aisha is the Founder of The World in Her Words, a website which shares strategies for succeeding as a career woman in today's world.
