This month has been full of punches at Intel from the Cupertino giant. At their November ‘One More Thing‘ event, Apple showed off their first Macs running their silicon, and they have no competition from Intel processors. Then, in an announcement on Thursday, Apple named a new Vice President of inclusion and diversity, Intel’s Barbara Whye.

Whye joined Intel in 1995 as an engineer, and has moved up the corporate ladder to her current role, chief diversity and inclusion officer, and corporate Vice President of social impact. She famously led Intel’s Diversity in Technology initiative, which resulted in Intel reaching full representation in its US workforce in October 2018, 2 years ahead of schedule.

Whye earned her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of South Carolina, and her MBA from the University’s Darla Moore School of Business. She is currently a doctoral student at Arizona State University’s school for the Future of Innovation in Society.
