Forbes has named Alcoa one of the Best Employers for Diversity 2021.

At Alcoa, we believe in creating a culture where everyone can do their best work. We were honored to be recognized by Forbes as a Best Employer for Diversity. The recognition was based on their research from Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.


More than 50,000 U.S. employees were surveyed in companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees to identify The Best Employers for Diversity. The evaluation was based on:

•Direct Recommendations: Employees gave opinions on a series of statements regarding Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, LGBTQA+ & General Diversity in their current workplace. Recommendations of women, elders, and ethnic minorities were weighted higher than non-minority groups.

•Indirect Recommendations: Participants also evaluated other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regard to diversity. Only minority group recommendations were considered.

•Diversity Among Top Executives/Board and Diversity Engagement Indicators were also part of the evaluation.
