Intel strives to provide an environment where employees from diverse backgrounds are valued, respected, challenged, acknowledged, and rewarded so they can achieve their potential and fulfill their career aspirations. We encourage employee connection through our network of Intel chartered 40+ Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and Leadership Councils (LCs). The ERGs and LCs are organized around race, national origin, gender identity, parenthood, diverse abilities, education, faith and beliefs, and other common affinities. These groups are open to all regular employees. They support our diversity and inclusion strategy and RISE 2030 corporate goals by building an environment of inclusion and enthusiasm for Intel as a great place to work.
