Just a short blog post this time. I speak at a lot of conferences on the broad topic of CSR, or environment, supply chain, ethics, etc. A few years ago it got a little too much for one person to try to fairly represent Intel at these external events while still driving CSR programs inside the company.The CSR team at Intel is small, but having more than one person helped spread the load. Today, we have content experts, regional leads and key executives all out speaking about CSR at Intel all around the world. I just prepared my monthly status report and realized that we are still turning down more invitations to speak than we are accepting. And even with that being the case, there are still days in the month where we have three different people in three different cities all trying to fairly represent Intel in external CSR forums. Timeout! Please. We have a lot of work to do in our day-to-day jobs. Somebody has to realize that more than one conference on every day of the year that presents best practices and CSR might be too many. I’ve had a few conversations with conference organizers this past year to explain the challenge we’re faced with. I know conferences can be a good revenue stream, but we can’t be everywhere all at the same time.
