Economic Equity: Powering Opportunity for All

Diversity is key to Intel’s evolution and is a driving force for continued innovation and growth. We believe that diverse teams with diverse perspectives are more creative and innovative. We also feel a sense of responsibility to continue to lead the industry in this space by raising the bar for ourselves and, as a result, raising it for others. As we look to 2030, we will increase women in technical roles to 40% and double the number of women and underrepresented minorities in senior leadership. We will also collaborate with our industry to create and implement a Global Inclusion Index that provides common definitions and data to collectively identify the root causes and actions needed to advance progress and build the future pipeline of talent. But, economic equity isn’t just a question of who we employ; it’s also about employers that make our supply chain more resilient, power our research, development, and facilities, and help us drive innovation. The global pandemic has devastated some of these enterprises. We owe it to our suppliers and stakeholders to ensure that we not only collectively survive, but also that we all have the resources to thrive in this new reality.

 Public Policy Principles: Through the women and diverse entrepreneurs we work with, we can better understand the systemic inequities and challenges they face. This knowledge will inform our legislative advocacy, ensuring that we promote public policies that strengthen small businesses and provide economic opportunity and access to capital for all.

Health Equity: Knocking Down Barriers & Disparities 

Since our inception, we have prioritized the safety, health, and wellness of our workforce. Still, the pandemic has highlighted alarming disparities and biases within healthcare that impact our communities and employees, especially our employees of color. We take protecting our employees seriously, and honoring this commitment means addressing the social determinants that impact their health outcomes.

Public Policy Principles: We support legislative solutions and public policies that make it easier for all people to access quality and affordable healthcare. We will continue to enrich all lives through our innovative health and life science technologies. We support a policy landscape that helps ensure these technologies are deployed in a way that does not exacerbate disparities. Additionally, to combat bias in healthcare, we support greater funding for medical schools at HBCUs and minority-serving institutions and policies that combat the social determinants that impact health outcomes.

Intel remains committed to helping upskill and retool our workforce to ensure everyone can compete for the jobs of the future.

Public Policy Principles: We know that access to early education and early literacy programs is critical. That is why Intel is committed to ensuring that all communities have access to quality education and workforce development.

Additionally, we accept our responsibility to advocate for legislative solutions addressing soaring educational costs and other barriers to educational access.

Equitable Justice: Making Data-Driven Solutions

We are steadfast in our commitment to justice and equity at Intel and within our communities. To drive real change and eradicate inequities, we must identify and address the issues within our criminal justice system. We can and will do more by using our core competencies as a data-centric company to push for greater data collection and analysis to power data-driven justice.

Public Policy Principles: To facilitate data-driven justice, we support the modernization of the criminal justice system to enable the collection and processing of data to make better solutions to address the inequities within the system. Additionally, we support bolstering public and indigent defense, and we advocate for legislative solutions that ensure greater education, workforce development, and training opportunities for incarcerated populations.

Environmental Equity: Keeping All Communities Clean

The global pandemic has driven home a long-known but under-appreciated reality that low-income and communities of color bear the brunt of most environmental problems in the US and globally. Upcoming federal climate policy, energy policy, and infrastructure appropriation deliberations present opportunities for us to begin addressing these systemic inequities.

Public Policy Principles: Intel supports environmental equity provisions as central elements of future climate, energy, and infrastructure legislation. We will support policies that enable the role of the Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies in monitoring and addressing environmental equity issues. We accept our shared responsibility to enable all communities worldwide to monitor their neighborhood environmental conditions to inform efforts to improve those conditions.
