Corning's Senior Vice President of Human Resources Christy Pambianchi discusses the rich contributions made by women to Corning's 165-year history.

“Throughout Corning’s history, women have made innumerable contributions to the company’s success. More than a century ago, women worked in Corning’s manufacturing locations and in the research center. In the 1950s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, our female scientists were earning patents, and women were assuming management responsibilities. Corning was a groundbreaking company in this area. It’s a great source of pride to know that today, in 2016, I am a part of this history, as are all the women who work at Corning.

The company has expanded rapidly over the last decade. Today, Corning has a global footprint of 35,000 employees, and women are dispersed throughout all our regions. This provides Corning with a tremendous opportunity to help ensure that our pipeline of talent continues for generations to come.  In fact, this is the impetus for the UP2 initiative, which intends to develop the next generation of women at Corning at every level of the company. UP2 empowers women to choose their own career paths and in turn, help Corning succeed in its mission for another 165 years and continue its legacy of making life-changing innovations.”

About Our UP2 Initiative

About Our UP2 Initiative

Corning provides opportunities for women at every level of the company. The women who work here choose their career paths based on personal, job, and family goals. Every choice is valid and every contribution is valued, as it takes all of us working together to help Corning succeed. It has been this way throughout Corning’s history – a storied legacy of innovation that women have contributed to and been a valuable part of for more than 160 years.

The UP2 Initiative, sponsored by the women leaders within Corning, is intended to develop the next generation of women at Corning. Through UP2, we will mobilize the top 200 women of the company to mentor at least two other women, who in turn will coach two other women and so on. The multiplier impact of this effort will be incredible! We’ll inspire and empower women in this process through UP2, which will serve as a clearinghouse for connecting people, learning best practices, sharing success stories, and utilizing helpful tools.
