Disability is Diversity
Intel includes disability as part of diversity and inclusion. We have a goal of increasing the percentage of employees who self-identify as having a disability to 10% of our workforce by 2030. At Intel, the term disability includes chronic illnesses, mental and sensory conditions, neurodiversity, and physical impairments that may impact life activities. The term neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions. Disability may be present from birth or occur during a person’s lifetime and can be temporary or permanent.
