The Arizona Technology Council’s June 2020 Tech Inclusion Forum featured Reuben Miller, director of Intel Corporation’s director of Global Diversity, Inclusion and Social Impact.
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. Miller discussed 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 covered were Intel’s WarmLine Inclusive Leaders program, Intel’s network of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), as well as the company’s leadership councils comprised of over 200 senior Intel leaders who help guide and mentor members of the resource groups.
“The foundation of success is Intel’s diverse, inclusive and passionate company culture,” said Reuben Miller, director of Intel Corporation’s director of Global Diversity, Inclusion and Social Impact. “We are united by our purpose and values to help our customers succeed.”
Moderated by Stefanie Causey, CxO Consultant at Savvy XaaS LLC, it was a fantastic discussion and well worth a listen.
