Google hires Intel’s former head as VP


Danielle Brown, Intel’s former head of diversity who left the company earlier this month, has landed at Google. Brown will be Google’s VP of Diversity.

Brown joined Intel in 2009 as an associate for the company’s accelerated leadership program.

Brown’s leadership, Intel reported it hit its goal of retaining diverse employees, with a 15 percent exit rate for women and people of color compared to a 15.5 percent exit rate for employees in majority groups.

Google is still 31 percent female and 2 percent black, but it’s now 4 percent Hispanic, compared to just 3 percent Hispanic in its last report
