The Women’s and Diversity Center seeks to increase awareness, allyship, and action at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Prescott. The Women’s and Diversity Center strives to foster the campus’ engagement with and understanding of critical issues, including bias, power, and privilege. We actively counter racism, sexism, classism, heteronormativity, ableism, and other forms of institutionalized oppression. We aim to offer students, faculty, and staff the skills, training, and space for dialogue to serve as allies for one another on the path to a socially just and equitable society. The Women’s and Diversity Center ultimately wants to empower the campus community to take action on the issues that matter to them, guided by a social justice framework.

Congratulations to students Austin Phillips, Lorenzo Cabral, and Leah Murphy (pictured left to right) - Recipients of generous scholarships from the National Gay Pilots Association (NGPA) to be used toward their flight training.
