I haven’t seen that. I’ve got plenty of complaints on other topics, but in my opinion, intel is making good progress toward a more diverse, inclusive workplace. Not perfect, but striving toward a vision of inclusion.
On my first day, another team’s manager was shocked that I was hired (white male) to the point that another team’s coworker told him to “shut up”. He was legitimately bewildered how I was hired and asked a lot of info into my background.
I usually bristle at the term “virtue signaling” because only entitled assholes use it, but tech’s push for D&I is entirely that—a lot of talk about diversity and absolutely no legitimate analysis, action, or change.
