Welcome! A Message from Intel

Intel has been on a journey since 2015 to achieve full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in its U.S. workforce by the year 2020.  In October 2018, we achieved this goal two years ahead of schedule. Our workforce now reflects the percent of women and underrepresented minorities available in the U.S. skilled labor market. We are proud of achieving this milestone but not satisfied. We know we have more work to do. Creating a more diverse technology industry requires us to rethink our sources of talent and broaden our recruiting pipeline so more students have access to careers in STEM fields. That is why we remain committed to programs such as the Intel HBCU Grant Program and United Negro College Fund (UNCF).    We are excited to have you join us at this year’s NSBE conference. The mentorship, connections and professional development opportunities at NSBE can help you launch your technology and engineering career.

Take advantage of everything this experience has to offer and remember to have fun!
