Intel stands with their LGBTQ colleagues

In a statement, Barb Whye, chief diversity and inclusion officer of Intel said that:

“we stand with our LGBTQ colleagues, partners, suppliers, customers and the entire LGBTQ community, by showing our support through our words and actions. It’s an honor to be the CDIO of a company that is a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community, taking demonstrable actions toward building a more inclusive workforce and a more inclusive culture.”

More than 20 years ago, Intel established its Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allied Employee Resource Group (IGLOBE). Over the years, IGLOBE has spearheaded achievements including domestic partner health benefits, the addition of gender ID to the non-discrimination clause, and all-gender restrooms at US campuses.
