To advance social equity, inclusion and diversity, Arconic has established an Inclusion and Diversity Council, which includes a cross-functional team of Arconic leaders and is chaired by our CEO and coordinated by our Vice President of Inclusion and Diversity. It also includes the executive sponsors and leaders of each of our six Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which include the Arconic African Heritage Network (AAHN), Arconic Hispanic Network (AHN), Arconic Veterans Network (AVN), Thrive (Women’s Network), and Spectrum (LBGTQ+ network), and the President of the Arconic Foundation. The Inclusion and Diversity Council is responsible for tackling key objectives under its mission with an initiative we call Grow Together.
Grow Together is a long-term initiative to build awareness, inclusion and commitment among our employees; create a culture as a learning organization; attract, engage and retain diverse talent; and help organizations that are aligned with our own values and social justice objectives.
In 2020, the inaugural year of our Grow Together initiative, employees reported more than 2,200 actions and took countless others to learn more, volunteer their time or make a donation in support of our Grow Together mission to advance inclusion, diversity and social equity.
