Leadership Studies, McVay Family Town Hall (Room 114)


The historic shift to light weighting in the automotive industry presents a unique growth opportunity for the miracle metal aluminum. This lecture describes the drivers of this shift and how Alcoa's flat rolled products business capitalizes on it to create value for Alcoa's shareholders – as well as how physics education helped to prepare me for my business endeavor.
