Interesting Fact

In 2020, the three ERGs – Society of Black Professionals, Black Technology Network, and Black Growth Council – took a powerful step together, deciding together to unite into a single Employee Resource Group. The consolidated ERG will leverage the strengths of its collective members and speak with one voice in working with key Corning leaders to fulfill its mission while honoring the legacies of the original groups.
