By Silicon Valley standards, Intel is not the typical firm. So reports The Mercury News.

The Santa Clara-based firm can boast of increasing its proportion of women, African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans by 9%, 31%, 11% and 40%, respectively, since 2015. Women comprise 27% of Intel's workforce, while Latinos, African Americans and Native Americans make up 9%, 5% and .05%, respectively.

While those gains do not mean that Intel has a workforce that looks like the U.S population, the firm's workforce does mirror the percentage of women and people of color in the U.S. skilled labor market. Those gains were achieved two years ahead of Intel's own stated deadline.

"Our diversity and inclusion goals sit right beside our product goals for the company," says Barbara Whye, Intel's diversity chief. "I meet with our CEO on a monthly basis. About 7% of my pay on an annual basis is tied to how well I do on the metrics."

To build on its gains, Intel will rely on diverse leadership and has learned "...that diverse leaders actually hired more diverse employees and those employees experienced higher levels of inclusion," Whye said.
