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 organisation 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.

Intel, a WEConnect International corporate member, invites you to join them for an afternoon event at their office in Canary Wharf, London. You’ll learn more about people selection and development and how it is done at Intel as well as about the procurement process in a multinational business.

This event is aimed at majority women owned businesses; those that are minimum 51% owned by one or more women, who provide products and services in the following sectors: Marketing, HR, Recruitment, Catering, Training, Advertising, Merchandise, Events, Corporate Services, Logistics, Facilities Management, Legal and Technology.

This event will be led by Deaneesha Govender, Commodity Manager for Sales and Marketing with Intel speakers Megan Stowe, Procurement Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa and Joanne Watson, EMEA Diversity & Inclusion Manager.
