U.S. EEO-1 Report
Corning has made conscientious strides toward diversity for more than 50 years. While we have made significant progress over the years, we recognize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) is a journey.
We believe that transparency of our diversity data is a critical part of that journey. Understanding the makeup of our workforce helps us drive representative leadership, create opportunities for employees to grow and succeed, and support an overall inclusive culture. Read our 2021 EEO-1 report here.
The data contained in the EEO-1 report represents just a portion of our global workforce. Corning employs more than 61,000 people worldwide, approximately 16,000 in the United States.
With nearly three quarters of Corning’s workforce located outside the U.S., our DE&I efforts span the globe. Our DE&I team includes regional representatives who provide on-the-ground support and lead our local efforts. Through targeted talent development programs, diversity councils, and employee resource groups, our businesses drive DE&I initiatives that matter most for their locations while supporting corporate objectives.
With DE&I front and center in all talent discussions, women now represent approximately a quarter of both our Corporate Management Group (the company’s top 240 leaders) and corporate officers, more than ever before. Inclusive of ethnically and globally diverse talent, the CMG is now 50% diverse and corporate officers are 38% diverse. But we can’t stop there. We intend to not just increase the representation of diverse talent in the company, but we are also focused on developing a strong, sustainable pipeline of this talent for leadership positions within our company.
Corning remains committed to leading our people, businesses, and communities to an intuitive DE&I mindset. This is not just the right thing for us to do – it is vital to our progress as a company.
