Alcoa announce multi-year sponsorship of Pride WA

Alcoa have announced they’ve signed on to support Pride WA in a three year sponsorship deal.

Alcoa’s Pinjarra refinery manager Mark Hodgson told the Community Newspapers Group that partnering with Pride WA and participating in events like the annual parade showed the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting the right for people to be their authentic self at work and in the community.

“Since 2014, members and allies of our employee affiliation group EAGLE (Employees at Alcoa for Gay and Lesbian Equality) have been hitting the streets of Northbridge for the Pride Parade to show support for the LGBTQI+ community,” Hodgson said.

Hodgson’s support for the LGBTIQ+ community was recognised last year when he was awarded a Pride in Diversity Leadership Award.

The Pride Parade is on Saturday 30th November in Northbridge, visit Pride WA’s website for all the details.
