Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT+ community celebrates in a variety of ways and Intel is proud to support the celebrations with a number of different events happenings at our sites around the world, including Ireland.
This year, to coincide with the Pride celebrations, we are excited to share that Intel has sponsored a specially commissioned piece of street art that can be found on Camden Row, in central Dublin.
The mural, which was painted by SUBSET – who are a collective of artists and designers – represents the 2000 year old relationship between Roman Emperor Hadrian and Greek servant Antinous.
The love affair between the Emperor Hadrian and Antinous is a tragic romance that had inspired the final great creative period of classical art and many artistic works that came thereafter. Hadrian was devastated after the unexpected death of Antinous, who drowned in the River Nile, and publicly commemorated him in many ways, including building a new city in his name.
Intel is proud to support SUBSET in their artistic endeavors that bring diverse topics to life, such as the pride mural, which captures the spirit of love, joy and acceptance.
Diversity and Inclusion at Intel
At Intel we believe that in order to shape the future of technology, we must be representative of that future. By bringing together people with a wide range of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences – and by encouraging a community of openness and inclusion – we can continue to innovate and solve the world’s toughest challenges.
We have a dedicated employee network, IGLOBE, which brings together Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Allied Employees and provides a forum that affirms Intel’s commitment to equality, diversity and making Intel a great place to work. IGLOBE represents a support network for LGBT+ Intel employees. Further, IGLOBE represents a point of contact, providing Intel employees with information on the LGBT+ community within Intel and information on broader LGBT+ communities in their regions.
