Black History Month Profiles: Dawn Cook

This year, for Black History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Dawn Cook of the Air Line Pilots (ALPA).

ALPA volunteer and First Officer Dawn Cook made history in 2017 as a pilot operating one of the first mainline flights with two Black women on the flight deck. In addition to working with the ALPA President’s Committee for Diversity and Inclusion, Cook is also an author and the president and co-founder of Female Aviators Sticking Together, a nonprofit founded to elevate, encourage and empower female aviators, and actively coach professional female pilots.
