ACC News | ACC Statement on Juneteenth

Today is Juneteenth, a holiday to celebrate the emancipation of African American slaves.

Three years ago, ACC made a firm commitment to the inclusion of #dei into every aspect of this organization. As we continue that journey, we want to acknowledge how much work there is still to do, not only within ACC but the entire aviation industry.

A majority of ACC members and their companies fall under the engineering category but only 5% of all engineers in the US are Black and less than 2% of those are Black women. Many factors contribute to this drastic disparity and ACC will continue to do its part to create more equitable opportunities in the aviation industry.
