Intel: Join us in making diversity in the tech industry a reality

Recent events have highlighted that exclusion, discrimination and prejudice are sadly very much still a part of our world. We all have a responsibility to advocate and bring forth change in the form of equality and fairness. In the tech world, the statistics about diversity and inclusion speak for themselves: only around 11% of senior leadership roles are held by women, and women of color only make up 4% of the computing workforce. Clearly, there is much work to be done.

Diversity and inclusion are foundational to Intel’s values, but we recognize we need to improve and grow as a business. This is why we recently announced our 2030 goals, with commitments including doubling the numbers of women and underrepresented minorities in senior roles in the next ten years. However, we’re also very aware – as has long been the case in the tech industry – that pledges are nothing without action and accountability. It’s why we’re also proposing the creation of a new standard industry index, informed by, and in partnership with, existing diversity frameworks.
