Hundreds of Amazon employees walked out of the office in Seattle this week — gathering between the company’s towers while holding signs, participating in chants, and listening to speakers urge the tech giant to do better.

It was part of a global walkout that organizers said drew participation from more than 2,000 Amazon employees worldwide, seeking bolder action on climate change, and a reversal of Amazon’s return-to-office policies. 

On this episode of the GeekWire Podcast, we hear from Amazon employees in the crowd and speakers at the podium, discuss the company’s perspective, and put the walkout in the context of larger shifts taking place in the tech industry.
