For our people and industry
At Intel, we provide a workplace where everyone has access and opportunity to achieve their best. Inclusion is one of Intel's core values and it is at the heart of our culture. We believe that when every employee has a voice and a sense of belonging, Intel can be more innovate, agile and competitive. We also know today’s greatest challenges require a shared commitment to the development of a more diverse technology industry, which includes commitments to social equity, supplier diversity, and industry collaboration.
For our communities
Changing the future of the world also means supporting the communities we serve. Intel and the Intel Foundation have a strong legacy of partnering with community organizations, governments, and academia to catalyze action. This includes creating positive impact on global social challenges, broadening equitable access and opportunity to STEM education, and supporting community needs to inspire the next generation of innovators.
For our world
In support of making a positive global impact for our world, we are advancing responsible business practices across our global operations, value chain and beyond. We have strong systems to avoid and address human rights violations and look for ways to apply our technology to support the advancement of these global challenges.
Making technology accessible and championing disability inclusion
Darryl Adam’s mission to make a more accessible PC started with an epiphany at the Intel cafeteria in 2007. Now he’s Intel’s Director of Accessibility, driving Intel’s mission to establish a sustained culture of accessibility, embrace technology and inclusive design practices to eliminate barriers, foster innovation, and empower all people to reach their full potential.
Coming out and finding acceptance – one man’s story as a trans person at Intel
We aim to cultivate a work environment that recognizes LGBT+ employees, provides competitive benefits, and fosters belonging. Arpit Das shares his story of coming out as a trans man and finding acceptance of his gender identify at Intel. Now Arpit no longer shies away from mirrors and is grateful for the support from his team.
Women inspiring the next generation
Intel provides plenty of resources and opportunities—from networking events to employee resource groups—that allow people to explore their passions outside of their job titles. Nnennaya Udochu joined Intel as an intern seven years go. Now she works as an analog engineer with data platforms and is making it her mission to reach back and inspire other Black women to enter STEM fields.
Inclusion is for everyone: from powerless to purpose
Inclusion is about creating a better world for everyone. At Intel, our efforts are focused on equity of opportunity and changes in a culture that benefit all. For Brandon Marin, that meant a hiring manager who was more focused on what he could achieve than on what had happened in his past struggles with addiction.
