The Arizona Technology Council would like to invite you to join June’s Tech Inclusion Forum on Monday, June 22nd at 3:30 PM. This month’s Forum will once again be virtual and will feature Reuben Miller, Director in Intel’s Human Resources Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Impact Office.
While a lot of discussions around diversity and inclusion have been centered on hiring diverse talent- one of the keys to creating and maintaining a diverse workforce is through the retention of existing employees. Reuben will discuss some of the lessons learned from the company’s D&I journey and some of the critical programs Intel has implemented to focus its efforts on creating an environment where existing employees from diverse backgrounds are valued, respected, challenged, acknowledged, and rewarded so they can achieve their potential and fulfill their career aspirations. Amongst the programs Reuben will discuss are Intel’s WarmLine, Inclusive Leaders programs and Intel’s network of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which includes Leadership Councils, composed of over 200 senior Intel leaders, that help guide and mentor members of the Resource Groups.
