WPT204: The Role White Men Play in Creating a Culture of Full Inclusion (WPT204-S)

Everyone has a role to play in creating and sustaining an inclusive work environment, but white men often opt out of, or are excluded from, diversity and inclusion efforts because the focus is on underrepresented groups. When white men are fully engaged in diversity efforts, they can help effect change at every level, and they also benefit from a healthy, inclusive workspace. Participants explore assumptions regarding white men, diversity, and leadership that impact behavior and shape the work environment, and they identify the next steps they can take to become fully inclusive partners working across differences to foster an equitable workplace culture. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Accenture. Complete Title: AWS re:Invent 2018: We Power Tech: The Important Role White Men Play in Creating a Culture of Full Inclusion (WPT204-S)

WPT203: We Power Tech: Addressing Intersectionality in Tech

When diversity efforts focus only on gender, they further marginalize the marginalized. How do we make sure that we address the needs of everyone that is underrepresented in the industry? Are we reaching our marginalized customers? What can we do to provide a platform for those voices to be heard and support their efforts. In this session, we hear from technical leaders on the best ways to work with and include marginalized communities. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Accenture.

WPT202: We Power Tech: Everyday Actions to Be a Better Ally

Have you ever thought, "I care about a more diverse and inclusive workplace, but what can I do? I'm not the VP of HR or Head of Diversity & Inclusion at my company." If so, you're not alone. Knowing how to be a better ally for underrepresented people working in tech is unfamiliar territory for many of us. Yet, there are everyday actions we can take to create a more diverse and inclusive culture. Come to this session to learn about key challenges women and underrepresented minorities face in our tech workplaces and ways you can make a difference. Learn tips on how to sponsor, champion, amplify, and advocate for all. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Accenture.

WPT201: We Power Tech: Lightning Talks with Executive Women in Tech

Diversity in technology often starts with a focus on women. How do we prioritize the inclusion of women from all communities (race, gender identity, ability status, and other underrepresented and intersectional communities) on technical teams? What can leaders do-from cultivating the pipeline, to hiring, to developing internal strategies-to make the future of tech more diverse and inclusive? Hear from successful executive technical leaders as they explore their journeys through the industry. Leave with solutions on how to prioritize inclusion and drive results. This session is brought to you by AWS partner, Accenture.

WPS315: Changing the Way the Intelligence Community Moves Data

In this session, we feature the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), a key stakeholder and sponsor for the new AWS Secret Region, which supports workloads up to the Secret U.S. security classification level and is readily available to the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). NGA uses AWS Snowball Edge to support War Fighter, utilizing imagery from NGA's Open Data Store and implementing geospatial applications on the edge. AWS Snowball Edge allows NGA to directly support its mission, providing products and services to decision makers, warfighters, and first responders when they need it most. Enabling the edge changes NGA's ability to share critical resources, data to facilitate user access meets NGA's mission needs, and support the IC and Department of Defense as a whole Complete Title: AWS re:Invent 2018: National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency: Changing the Way the Intelligence Community Moves Data (WPS315)

WPS305: Fannie Mae Processes over a Quarter Million Loans per Day w/ Amazon S3

In this session, Fannie Mae discusses how they completely re-architected a mission-critical application using AWS native services that process hundreds of thousands of mortgage loans every day in a highly scalable and reliable manner. The transaction-heavy workload uses over 20+ million Amazon S3 transactions a day, each within 150-millisecond response times, thus providing increased uptime and faster response.

WPS303: Unlock Highly Regulated Enterprise Workloads w/ SaaS (AWS GovCloud [US]) WPS303

AWS GovCloud (US) is isolated AWS infrastructure and services designed to allow US government agencies and enterprises in highly regulated industries to move sensitive data and regulated IT workloads to the cloud by addressing specific regulatory and compliance requirements. While enterprises and organizations are increasingly integrating software as a service (SaaS) technologies into their IT environments, they often require SaaS products to address the same compliance features of the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. In this session, we discuss the opportunities for SaaS in AWS GovCloud (US), how SaaS vendors should approach building products in AWS GovCloud (US), key architecture and operational considerations, and best practices for bringing a SaaS product on AWS GovCloud (US) to market.

WPS205: Finding Tech Talent: Creating the Next Generation of Cloud Workers

On LinkedIn, the #1 skill for three years in a row is cloud and distributed computing. The pressure on our educational system to produce tech-ready employees, and on companies to source talent, is enormous, with ripe opportunities for disintermediation. In this session, hear from the disruptors who are collaborating with AWS Educate in order to rapidly change the trajectory and impact that global skills gap. Meet both the supply and demand side for cloud jobs.

WPS204: Building a Governance, Risk, and Compliance Strategy with AWS

In this session, learn how Dr. Julia Lane, Director of the Administrative Data Research Facility (ADRF) at NYU, used AWS and AWS Public Sector Partner Earthling Security to build a software-as-a-service (SaaS) research and analysis environment that hosts sensitive U.S. Census Bureau data. The ADRF hosted almost 50 confidential government data sets from 12 different agencies at all levels of government. The ADRF chose AWS to meet strict security and governance requirements such as FedRAMP compliance, ease of implementation, and robust native security. AWS provided NYU a complete set of infrastructure, application, and security services perfectly suited for U.S. government requirements. In addition, AWS discusses how these principles and practices can be applied to an organization's governance, risk, and compliance needs.

WPS203: You've Decided to Buy Cloud Services, Now What?

In this session, we look at cloud-ready contracts from around the world. We compare and contrast these contracts through scope identification, end-user eligibility, and primary service offerings (i.e., MSP vs. IaaS resale) to help you determine a contract pathway that meets your mission needs. We discuss considerations for buying cloud services so that end users and organizations can extract the full benefits and power of AWS. Join us and gain an understanding of how to approach shared security, utility pricing, data location, innovative services, governance, and terms and conditions for a successful procurement effort.
