Intel’s 2017 Diversity and Inclusion Midyear Report and the Road Ahead

At CES in 2015, our CEO, Brian Krzanich, announced Intel’s plan to achieve full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in our U.S. workforce by the year 2020. This is important to us because we believe diverse and inclusive teams with diverse perspectives are more creative and innovative. We are now at the halfway point in that journey. Since our 2015 announcement, the social and political climate has evolved as issues of diversity and inclusion have become ever more pressing, especially in our industry. That makes our effort to achieve full representation even more urgent. We’ve come a long way, but there is still much to be done. Since taking on the role of chief diversity and inclusion officer in April, I’ve been evaluating our progress, reflecting on the lessons learned and considering how best to achieve our goals.
