Leadership Message

As Corning’s Global Diversity Officer, I would like to thank you for your interest in our company. As a leading innovator in a number of today’s high technology industries, we offer a variety of exciting career opportunities. Ours is a welcoming culture that is grounded in our Corporate Values and a deep commitment to Diversity and Inclusion.

Just as diverse individuals inherit unique genetic codes, Corning has a distinctive heritage and culture unlike any other company. Our respectful reliance on Diversity and its essential role in our success is deeply ingrained in all of us. Diversity is at the heart of who we are as individuals and as a company. Diversity is in our DNA.

Corning’s employees are diverse not only in gender, ethnicity and race, but also by age, sexual orientation, work styles and levels, perspective, education and skills.  At Corning we have a variety of employee resource groups called Affinity Groups.   The Affinity Groups raise awareness around important issues that often stimulate the company to respond with new policies, services, and development and training opportunities. In addition, these groups draw employees into cultural activities, thereby increasing cultural understanding among colleagues that enhances working relationships.  We support Affinity Groups like the following: 

  • Corning Chinese Association (CCA)
  • Corning Professional Women's Forum (CPWF)
  • Corning Professionals Network (CPN)
  • Ethnic Diversity Group of Employees (EDGE)
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Employee Resource Group (SPECTRA)
  • Native American Council (NAC)
  • Society of Black Professionals (SBP)

If you begin a career at Corning I would encourage you to consider becoming involved in an Affinity Group.

Good luck in your job search!
