Stocks in this article: AA

Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced today that 10 of its early-career professionals from seven countries will participate in the third annual One Young World Summit, a global gathering of bright, young business and philanthropic leaders, who will discuss global issues and develop solutions to meet the challenges of the 21st century. In addition, Alcoa Foundation, through a partnership with the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, invited six environmental and educational NGO leaders from New York, China, and Pittsburgh to share ideas and best practices. The event will take place in Pittsburgh from October 18-22.

Modeled after the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the One Young World Summit will bring together 1,500 delegates under the age of 30 from 190 countries to present, debate, and develop solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental, business, education, health and political issues.

“This is a great opportunity to prepare Alcoa’s future leaders in a truly multi-cultural, multi-national experience as well as broaden their perspectives to approach business challenges,” said Mike Barriere, Alcoa Vice President Human Resources. “One of Alcoa’s strengths is our ability to leverage the differences and viewpoints our employees bring to the workplace. We look forward to the ideas, projects and initiatives these young adults will generate together with their peers.”

The Alcoa contingent represents the company’s operations in Brazil, China, Hungary, Jamaica, Russia, United Kingdom and the U.S. The Alcoa delegates are:
