Corning Named ‘Best Place to Work’ by American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN

Corning Named ‘Best Place to Work’ by American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN

Corning Incorporated has been named one of the best places to work by the American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN for the second consecutive year.

Corning received a top score of 100 on the 2019 Disability Equality Index (DEI), a national, transparent benchmark that provides companies an objective score on disability-inclusion policies and practices, according to DEI's website. 

"Ensuring the dignity and inclusion of The Individual are core to Corning's Values," said Robert France, senior vice president, Human Resources. "It's what drives our success and helps every employee achieve their highest potential. This recognition tells us we're on the right course."

Companies are graded on their performances in five categories — culture and leadership, enterprise-wide access, employment practices, community engagement and support, and supplier diversity. Questions include specifics about resource groups, executive sponsors, accommodations, and internal and external awareness. 

In its application, Corning highlighted the work of Abled and DisAbled Partnering Together (ADAPT), an employee resource group that assists employees in finding resources to accommodate disabilities of all types, including short term, permanent, invisible, visible, intellectual, physical, or emotional. 

“Our work around diversity and inclusion is never complete,” said Monica Bankston, talent manager, Global Diversity & Inclusion. “We’re committed to making sure that our employees from every background, ability, and in every part of the world always feel accepted and included.”
