It is a priority for us to attract, develop, promote, and retain the world’s best diverse talent with deep technical and commercial knowledge. We want Corning to be the employer of choice for these individuals, and we distinguish ourselves through our strong Values, approach to inclusion, and a robust portfolio of employee development offerings. We proudly sponsor a variety of ERGs that represent vital employee constituencies. Our ERGs represent new employees, families, women, those with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community, Blacks, Asians, Latinos, Native Americans, and veterans, among others.
Another priority is to expand leadership opportunities for Corning’s diverse emerging talent, and this focus is paying off. Over the past decade, our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts have significantly improved the representation of diverse individuals at the highest levels of the organization. Going forward, we will continue these efforts to ensure our talent representing all dimensions of diversity is given every opportunity to be a part of the global leadership team that carries Corning forward in our chosen markets for another 170 years.
