Corning Inc., Corning, N.Y., has been named one of the winners of the 1999 Catalyst Award for its efforts to advance women into leadership positions. Corning's initiative, Women in Manufacturing, was launched in 1992 by a Corning senior manager. Its aim is to recruit Corning women into manufacturing and develop advancement opportunities for them. Because of Women in Manufacturing, diversity performance became a part of supervisors' evaluation and compensation. Plant managers share their diversity results, and since the initiative's inception, seven women have been promoted to plant manager. Twenty-five percent (five of 20) of the plant managers at Corning are women, and two former plant managers have moved into higher management roles. Catalyst is a nonprofit research organization that works with business to advance women. Corning, along with Baxter Healthcare Corp. and TD Bank Financial Group, will be presented with their 1999 Catalyst Awards at a ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York on Mar. 23, 1999.
