Human Rights Principles
Human rights are the fundamental rights, freedoms, and standards of treatment to which all people are entitled. Intel’s Global Human Rights Principles, adopted in 2009, formalize our commitment to respecting human rights; embody common principles laid out in multiple frameworks, including the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights; and apply to all employees and contingent workers, including those in our subsidiaries.
Why I Support the Equality Act
From an early age, I was acutely aware of my gender dysphoria but didn’t know how to talk to my parents about my gender.

Initially, I was rejected, which made my late teens and early adult years bleak, because I thought there would never be a place for me.
