Our path to create a more inclusive and responsible workplace, industry and world is embedded in our purpose. Diversity and inclusion are instrumental in driving innovation and delivering strong business growth. We are committed to creating a better world through the power of our technology, our global scale and the expertise and passion of our employees. It’s not added work, it’s how we work.
For our people and industry
At Intel, we provide a workplace where everyone has access and opportunity to achieve their best. Inclusion is one of Intel's core values and it is at the heart of our culture. We believe that when every employee has a voice and a sense of belonging, Intel can be more innovate, agile and competitive. We also know today’s greatest challenges require a shared commitment to the development of a more diverse technology industry, which includes commitments to social equity, supplier diversity, and industry collaboration.
For our communities
Changing the future of the world also means supporting the communities we serve. Intel and the Intel Foundation have a strong legacy of partnering with community organizations, governments, and academia to catalyze action. This includes creating positive impact on global social challenges, broadening equitable access and opportunity to STEM education, and supporting community needs to inspire the next generation of innovators.
For our world
In support of making a positive global impact for our world, we are advancing responsible business practices across our global operations, value chain and beyond. We have strong systems to avoid and address human rights violations and look for ways to apply our technology to support the advancement of these global challenges.
