Proud to be an Equal Opportunity employer

As part of our Alcoa values and our commitment as an Equal Opportunity (EEO) employer, we are excited to publish our second Gender Pay Gap report. The report includes all global salaried employees and evaluated whether we have pay equity by gender, which involves calculating the average earnings for both men and women and then making comparisons between those two groups.

Alcoa reports the analysis in two ways (below), following best practice methodology with third-party analysis. In both measurements, parity is considered when the result is within three percentage points, plus or minus:

  • Pay within band – Equal pay for equal work. This metric compares average earnings within specific pay band categories.
    • Our 2020 result showed a 2% Gender Pay Gap, which is considered pay parity. We also received pay parity in 2019, where we also reported a gap of 2%.
    • Put simply, women earn 98 percent of what men make in the same pay bands.
  • Pay Gap – Overall equity in earnings. This compares the overall pay average for all salaried employees across the globe.
    • Our 2020 study showed an overall 17% Gender Pay Gap. A 1% reduction from our 2019 reported pay gap.
    • This means that overall, women earn 83 percent of what men earn when all salaried positions are compared globally.
    • This larger gap reflects the lower representation of women in senior positions.
2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index

We are committed to achieving gender balance throughout Alcoa and are working to define longer-term intentional actions to improve overall equity in earnings. More broadly, we continue to execute against our overall inclusion and diversity strategies for the betterment of all.
