Corning Named One of the Best Places for Equality

The Human Rights Campaign recently recognized Corning Incorporated as one of only 517 businesses in the U.S. that received a perfect score on its 2017 Corporate Equality Index. This distinguishes Corning as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.” We have received the top score of 100 percent for 12 consecutive years.

"Receiving a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index once again is extremely gratifying," said Monica Bankston, talent manager, Office of Global Diversity & Inclusion.

The Human Rights Campaign is the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization in the U.S. Published every year for 15 years, the Corporate Equality Index rates a company’s policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. In 2017, the Human Rights Campaign ranked 887 companies in its Corporate Equality Index, up from 851 in 2016.

"It is a testament to the fact that Corning supports an inclusive culture that values the full spectrum of diversity, and provides a safe, accepting environment where every employee can bring his / her whole self to work," Bankston said.

We believe in the fundamental dignity each employee and our network consists of a diverse mixture of people. We value the unique ability of each individual to contribute, and we intend that every employee shall have the opportunity to participate fully, to grow professionally, and to develop to his or her highest potential.
