Vice President and Director of Business HR for CISA and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Intel Corporation
Inclusion is the foundation of high performance and innovative teams where every employee is empowered and capable of doing their best work. If we want to shape the future of technology, we must be representative of that future.
Last August, we announced continuing to raise the bar by pulling in our workforce representation goal to the end of 2018. Here is a look at where we’re at, our overall strategy and what’s next.
Building a More Diverse & Inclusive Intel
We asked Intel employees for insight into why diversity and inclusion matters. Here’s what they had to say.
Systems Validation Engineer “It’s been an incredible ride, and were it not for Intel I wouldn’t have been able to afford my graduate education. Since joining Intel, I’ve been able to witness and be a part of a culture that aims to foster diversity of thought and reap the benefits that it brings.”
BIOS Engineer specializing in Memory Reference Code “In a company like Intel that places so much value on innovation and creativity, having a diverse workforce is essential to ensuring our teams are able to examine challenges and handle day-to-day complexity from every angle.”
Director of EMEA Corporate Strategic Procurement and the International Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program “We have had a huge opportunity to educate all of our suppliers and share best practices. When we do business with diverse-owned companies, the economic impact to that country, region or city is amazing. We are helping to provide jobs and that money is then spent back in the local community.”
Business Development Manager, Supplier Diversity & Inclusion “Everyone has something unique to contribute and diversity enhances the ideas we generate when we’re trying to do things that have never been done. Having many ways to solve problems and differing points of view challenges us to constantly evolve and become better.”
