Our Business Responsible Inclusive Sustainable Enabling Appendix 6 2021-22 Corporate Responsibility Report Introduction IRTI: Going Beyond COVID-19 We are extremely proud of how our team has responded throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have made changes and adopted measures to continue providing a safe environment for our employees and the operation of our manufacturing sites, and worked to mitigate risks to workers in our supply chain . Intel, the Intel Foundation, and Intel subsidiaries have donated $10 million to support local communities, including matching of employee and retiree donations. In 2020, we launched our Pandemic Response Technology Initiative (PRTI), a $50 million commitment to support essential workers, hard-hit businesses, and students of all ages with Intel-funded technology projects. Through PRTI, Intel partnered with more than 170 organizations on over 230 projects in multiple sectors. In 2021, we expanded the scope of the PRTI to include additional program areas, and renamed it the Intel RISE Technology Initiative (IRTI). With IRTI we are building deeper relationships with our customers and other partners in line with our corporate purpose and goal to create shared value. Since then, the IRTI has created a broader, purpose-driven platform for action with new dedicated workstreams for social equity and human rights, accessibility, and climate action. Among the many lessons learned over the past two years, is that technology is essential. In the IRTI’s first year, we invested $9.5 million to fund 63 projects across six areas that align with the Intel RISE pillars: accessibility; economic recovery; education; health and life sciences; social equity and human rights; and sustainability and climate. Intel differentiated technology was utilized in 67% of the projects to solve unique challenges that plague individuals and organiza - tions globally. Intel experts drive the success of IRTI projects, and we work with partners to identify issues and provide unique technology solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges. Some of the most compelling projects funded by IRTI support diverse communities and strengthen our goal to support social equity and innovation. Intel has earmarked an additional $10 million for IRTI in 2022. Below are examples of IRTI projects. For more, see “ Collaborating for Technology Impact ” in the Enabling section of this report. Economic Recovery: Upskilling Program Supports Sports, Entertainment Workers. As we emerge from the pandemic, we’re faced with millions of workers who lost their jobs looking for new opportunities, including 9.3 million people in the sports and entertainment industries. We partnered with Microsoft and the Innovation Institute for Fan Experience to launch a joint initiative to address the skills gap and provide workers with a path for upward professional mobility. This program provides access to online curated content to help workers increase their competency, grow their professional skills, and enhance their capabilities for current and future roles. Ensuring an inclusive economic recovery requires opportunities for those hit hardest by job losses to develop essential skills. Health and Life Sciences: Integrating AI in Healthcare and Help Improve Patient Safety. Through IRTI, we’re implementing Intel technology to help improve patient safety and care. One project leverages Intel AI technology to establish zones around a patient’s bed, implementing virtual rails that, if crossed, trigger an alert for the medical team. A trained technician also monitors multiple patient rooms from a central station with this AI-assisted tech and alerts the care team to help prevent falls in the hospital setting. Built with Intel® OpenVINO™ technology to ensure enhanced performance on Intel AI hardware, the solution has been deployed at Intermountain Healthcare . We will continue to uncover and address both patient and provider needs and optimize Intel technology to maximize our potential impact within the medical industry. Sustainability and Climate: Establishing a Solar Community Hub in Brazil. To address environmental and educational needs of the Boa Esperança community in Brazil, we partnered with Dell and the Sustainable Amazon Foundation to establish a solar community hub. The solar-powered hub provides Internet access, technology, and services that benefit about 1,500 people. Included is access to digital literacy skills, business management training, and healthcare through telehealth connections. Also included is the Amazon Deforestation Alert System, which combines Inputs from local envi - ronmental monitors with AI technology to identify and predict occurrences of deforestation or environmental degradation in the Amazon region.
