We continued to evolve and engage employees and leadership in diversity programs in 2012 by:
  • Launching a Veterans Diversity Initiative to support the more than 750 U.S. veterans and spouses at our company. We also provided focused community outreach to military families.
  • Piloting "Communicating with the Chinese," a seminar to build on cultural understanding and communication skills for those working with TI China.
  • Hosting the following diversity-related workshops:
    • "Leadership Lab (India)," which focused on generational differences in the workplace, work-life integration and gender differences.
    • "Culture Scene Investigation" to improve understanding of cultural differences.
    • "Understanding Chinese Culture."
  • Expanding the activity of TI Insights groups, with the objective of having a greater reach and positive impact on retention. "Connections" sessions were held between the groups and company leaders throughout the year. In addition, our Black Insights group offered forums on the experiences of black men and women in the contemporary workplace.
  • Enhancing our commitment to increase the number of women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math by hiring a record number of women interns within the Technology and Manufacturing group.
Our TI Diversity Network (TIDN) led another successful Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day and a juvenile diabetes fundraising campaign. Several other initiatives continued to share resources and collaborate to support each others' activities and increase participation.


In 2012:
  • Forty percent of our board members were women and 10 percent were people of color. Ten percent were ages 30 to 50, and 90 percent were older than 50.
  • Sixteen percent of global executives were women; in the U.S., 18 percent of executives were people of color.
  • Nearly half of our total hires were women (49 percent).
  • Five percent of our global TI Fellows were women and 23 percent of U.S. TI Fellows were people of color. (TI Fellows are engineers, scientists or technologists who are elected based on exceptional technical contributions that significantly contribute to TI's shareholder value).
  • Nearly one-quarter (21 percent) of our global interns were women.

We also continued to receive various diversity-related accolades recognizing our company as a great place to work. For example:

  • Fortune Magazine designated TI among the "World's Most Admired Companies" for the ninth year. We ranked second in the semiconductors category.
  • Working Mother Magazine named TI among the "100 Best Companies" for the 17th consecutive year.
  • The Human Rights Campaign Foundation again included TI on its 2013 Corporate Equality Index (based on 2012 performance) for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. We scored 85 percent.
  • The National Association for Female Executives named TI among the "Top 50 Companies for Executive Women" in the U.S. for the seventh time.
  • Woman Engineer Magazine ranked TI 38th on its 21st annual "Top 50 Employers" list.
  • Minority Engineer Magazine readers named TI to its 2012 list of "Top 50 Employers."
  • The University of Texas at Dallas presented TI with its Corporate Diversity Award for funding a program that supports women in science, technology, engineering and math.

Looking ahead

In the coming year, we will continue engaging current and new employees and managers in diversity-related activities and programs. TIDN will take the lead in fostering increased collaboration and making TI a great and inclusive place to work for all employees. We also will continue introducing U.S. employees gained from the National Semiconductor acquisition to the TIDN and related resources.
