Office of Racial Equity & Social Unity

Taking action now to build a better future for communities of color


Everyone has a role to play in achieving racial equality and social unity. Corning’s Office of Racial Equality and Social Unity serves as leaders and collaborators in the places we call home, using our scale to develop partnerships that advance school diversity, healthcare access and economic growth – programs that deliver meaningful multi-generational benefits, particularly in communities of color. We do this through our three strategic initiatives that drive diversity in education systems, stimulate economic growth in under-resourced areas and promote healthcare advocacy, access and awareness. We also amplify issues of national concern when and where our voices make a difference.
