Opinion: Barbara Whye Introduces New ‘Global Inclusion Index’

Barbara Whye
Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer
Corporate Vice President, Social Impact and Human Resources

Fast Company today published “Corporate diversity is shrouded in secrecy. It doesn’t have to be,” an opinion editorial from Barbara Whye, Intel chief officer of Diversity and Inclusion and corporate vice president of Social Impact. Whye writes that a new “Global Inclusion Index” and a supporting coalition would allow the technology industry to track progress in areas such as the advancement of women and minorities in senior positions, accessible technology and equal pay.

Whye writes about Intel’s commitment to the Index’s goals and what the supporting coalition hopes to achieve:

“We envision an index and coalition of companies and large organizations that not only commit to a shared set of diversity and inclusion goals but publish their progress on these collective goals. We will be looking at factors such as representation numbers and pay equity, and progress in promoting women and employees from underrepresented groups into senior roles. We also will seek to highlight efforts to increase accessibility to technology for those who are part of underserved communities and those with disabilities. Based on these discussions, the coalition will develop three to four common measurable goals that will move the needle for diversity and inclusion in the industry.”
