Intel has pledged $300m of investment to improve diversity at the company and the wider technology and gaming sectors.
The firm plans to work with several partners, including the International Game Developers Association, the E-Sports League, Feminist Frequency and the National Center for Women in Technology to support, enhance or create new programs for the initiative.
"We're calling on our industry to again make the seemingly impossible possible by making a commitment to real change and clarity in our goals," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich."Without a workforce that more closely mirrors the population, we are missing opportunities, including not understanding and designing for our own customers."
