Commitment Partners

This partnership has an exponential effect — and helps us drive change across the industry at a much faster rate, because, as they say, there is strength is numbers.

Intel has been focused on diversity and inclusion for more than a decade. In 2015, it began a quest to become a more diverse and inclusive company—even setting goal a goal to attain full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in its U.S. workforce by 2020—a goal it would reach two years early.

Intel continues to foster an inclusive culture and drive an industry transformation by creating opportunities for women and URMs to pursue STEM careers, driving solutions to retain its current URM and women talent, and more as it seeks to become the most inclusive company on the planet and to fulfill its purpose: creating world-changing technology that enriches the lives of every person on earth.

The goal of this alliance is to establish a unified set of diversity and inclusion metrics and standards to better track progress and identify areas of improvement. We invite others to join us to create positive change within corporations, our communities and society at large.

NTT DATA is committed to supporting a sustainable culture of inclusion through education, awareness, engagement and accountability. We know that it is through our differences that we create strength.

We are working to drive behaviors that will support and improve diversity of all kinds. We have employee resource groups to help employees who share common backgrounds and interests to establish networks, discuss issues, share ideas and propose change. These groups have been essential in helping to drive change and engagement. We’ve established a Talking About Race portal to share information and perspectives.

We’re committed to making our workforce and our leadership team more diverse through practices, tools and accountability. A culture of inclusion must be sustained, which takes continuous focus on providing education and experiences that increase awareness around what it means to be inclusive. Certainly, we’ll continue to have events occur that have an impact on our employees, clients and communities. So we will evolve our focus areas and programs as we continue creating and sustaining an inclusive culture at NTT DATA.

A sustainable culture of inclusion requires learning and engaging together.

At Snap, our mission is to contribute to human progress by empowering people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world and have fun together. Every day, hundreds of millions of Snapchatters from all backgrounds, all over the world, use our services to express themselves authentically, and we want to reflect and support the diversity of our community in both our products and our team. We are committed to becoming a more fair, inclusive and anti-racist company, and living up to that promise in the culture we create for our team, the products we design and the larger tech ecosystem we contribute to.

To support this work and drive meaningful, systemic change, we are focused on baking our DEI strategy into every aspect of our business. Within our team, we are focused on scaling empathy, so that all team members feel intrinsically motivated to do their part; redesigning our product and engineering systems to build products that work for all Snapchatters; and rolling out comprehensive accountability mechanisms for all team members, including our executive team. Read more about our work and progress in our 2021 Diversity Annual Report.

Equity is an idea whose time has come. Although long overdue there is no silver bullet: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion require long-term collective effort to change hearts, minds, and systems. And that is what this coalition sets out to do.
