Intel CEO Says His Team Has Received Threats Over Stance On Diversity

It would be interesting to know just what kind of threats Intel's leadership team has received over their stance on diversity. I guess I just don't understand the whole mentality behind internet threats in the first place. Do you?

"People worry that as a white man, you’re kind of under siege to a certain extent," Krzanich said. "There’s been a bit of resistance. We’ve even had a few threats and things like that on some of our leadership team around our position on diversity and inclusion. We stand up there and just remind everybody it’s not an exclusive process. We’re not bringing in women or African-Americans or Hispanics in exclusion to other people. We’re actually just trying to bring them in and be a part of the whole environment."
