Throughout its more than 160-year history, women have played an integral role in the development and success of Corning. From opening doors for Corning women of the present and future to paving the way toward innovation in the materials science industry, women at Corning have never backed down from a challenge.
“We talk about wanting to leave Corning in the hands of the next generation of leaders better than we received the company,” said Christy Pambianchi, senior vice president, Human Resources. “One of the reasons we were excited about building the history of women’s contributions to Corning was it generated a real source of pride to know that over 100 years ago, Corning had women working in their manufacturing locations, in the research center, getting patents, beginning to take on management roles. It’s exciting to know I sit on top of a history and timeline of women having made substantive contributions to the company.”
Take a look back at some of the influential women at Corning who not only made achievements for women but achievements for the company as well.
