Diversity is an integral part of Intel’s competitive strategy and vision. In January 2015, Intel announced the Diversity in Technology initiative, setting a bold hiring and retention goal to achieve full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in Intel’s U.S. workforce by 2020. The company also committed $300M to support this goal and accelerate diversity and inclusion—not just at Intel, but across the technology industry at large. The scope of Intel’s efforts span the entire value chain, from spending with diverse suppliers and diversifying its venture portfolio to better serving its markets and communities through innovative programs like Hack Harassment, which aims to combat online harassment.


In February 2016, Intel continued its commitment to diversity and inclusion goals and transparency by publicly issuing a full-year 2015 report and announcing 2016 goals. As with its August 2015 mid-year diversity report, Intel’s full-year report included significantly more information than the EEO-1 form or than has been reported in the past for Intel’s U.S. workforce. Intel achieved the overall hiring and retention goals established for 2015, launched multiple programs and announced investments in its five key pillars of diversity strategy: workforce representation, pipeline, supplier diversity, venture diversity, and gaming. Intel’s focus for 2016 will build on hiring goals to include investments in cultural transformation and retention of key talent.
