It’s no secret that healthy competition leads to better products and services and a strengthened economy. Entrepreneurs have always been the catalysts for economic growth, and Intel has long been a champion of their efforts. To continue this tradition, Intel provides individuals with the relevant skills, literacy and resources they need to help their businesses succeed.

In 2015, Intel’s CEO, Brian Krzanich, shared Intel’s commitments to Diversity, which included spending $1b per annum with certified diverse suppliers. He further committed to Intel Capital spending $125m with diverse technology suppliers. To help enable this vision Intel’s CEO made available a diversity and inclusion fund of $300m. This shows Intel’s dedication at all levels within the organization to drive success in Diversity, as well as build an innovative and diverse supply chain reflecting the market and supporting the communities we work in. In the United Kingdom Intel is driving an initiative in the supply chain and giving individuals the skills to compete in any economy.
