Intel Celebrates Women in Technology at Grace Hopper Conference

Just as imagining the future and solving problems require diversity of thought and authentic perspectives, we at Intel believe that diversity and inclusion are essential for innovation and growth. An absence of perspectives limits our ability to understand and design for our own customers, and undermines our continued relevance and growth as an industry. Reversing the gender imbalance in the technology industry is a crucial component of Intel’s Diversity in Technology initiative, announced in January 2015. In February 2016, Intel announced 100 percent gender pay parity in its workforce which was maintained as of the 2016 mid-year report. The mid-year 2016 report, released in August, also revealed that an increase of female representation to 25.4 percent in the U.S. workforce (one of the highest figures in recent years), increase of technical female representation to 21.2 percent, and that women represented 42.9 percent of new leadership (VP-level and above) hires in first half 2016. In August, Intel signed the Equal Pay Pledge to commit to take action to advance equal pay.
