Fortune 50’s Most Powerful Women (2015-2016)

Diane Bryant

Technology President and Advisor

Diane Bryant, the most acknowledged and successful female executive in the $300 billion chip industry, has paved her way through the tech industry making leading impacts on reputable companies. She worked at Intel for just over thirty years, ending her career there as the President of the Data Center Group which helped Intel become a significant supplier of processor chips to corporate clients. Following her departure at Intel, Google announced that Bryant would be joining Google Cloud as the new Chief Operating Officer. Currently, she serves as an Independent Director at Broadcom, Inc. and an Advisory Board Member with CurieAi and OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies.

In a recent Forbes interview by Johan Moreno, Bryant explains that as a leading women tech executive, she encourages the majority population to invest in an inclusive environment that invites diversity. She acknowledges the risk that comes with change in a workplace that is focused on the majority instead of the minority, but insists that business communities should consider talent as being the compelling reason to shift the workplace into a more diverse environment.

Bryant attended American River College in Sacramento, CA before transferring to the University of California, Davis. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering in 1985.
