Intel is becoming more diverse, announcing an ambitious plan to add more women and minority workers to its ranks.
Since January, roughly 17% of Intel’s senior hires were historically under-represented minorities — about double the rate last year. Intel also doubled its senior hiring among women to 33%
Moreover, roughly 41% of Intel’s hires for the year so far have been diverse. Up from about 30% a year ago. The diverse hiring has occurred throughout the company, including the engineering, human-resources and finance departments. Intel has roughly 106,000 employees.
