PFLAG the nation's largest organization uniting LGBTQ families & allies announced it will honor the Alcoa Corporation with the Straight for Equality in the Workplace Award at the Ninth Annual Straight for Equality Awards Gala on Monday, March 27th at the Marriott Marquis New York in Times Square. Jean-Marie Navetta, PFLAG National Director of Learning & Inclusion stated, "Alcoa has demonstrated the power of working to create a more inclusive organization at every level & every function. Their work to have fully inclusive policies is impressive, but the real power is in the fact that they’ve brought LGBT learning opportunities to their whole organization, from employees in corporate offices to employees working on manufacturing floors. It sends a key message: Inclusion is for everyone here." Roy Harvey Alcoa Chief Executive Officer concluded, “At Alcoa, embracing diversity & ensuring that our employees are their authentic self is embedded in our Care for People value. We rely on talented people to run our operations & our Care principle is a constant reminder that we have a responsibility to provide an inclusive, safe & supportive environment for every employee. We applaud PFLAG National’s work & we thank them for this honor.”
Straight for Equality Awards are presented to individuals who are transforming the way that LGBTQ people are understood & treated, using their talents & platforms in their respective fields to empower others to become engaged & outspoken allies for fairness, diversity & inclusion.
