Peer Diversity Educators

Acceptance, diversity, openness

Peer Diversity Educators (PDE) is a peer-to-peer equity, diversity, and inclusion training, education, and personal development program. Our educators promote understanding and respect for people of all abilities, creeds, races, social classes, and gender identities, as well as expressions and affectional orientations. Through educational programs, our goal is to open people’s minds in the hope of eliminating prejudice and discrimination.

Hi! My name is Jinxxy, and I'm a Graphic Design Major here at UWEC. I joined PDE to become a better educator and advocate. I love all varieties of games- card games, board games, videogames, and puzzles! You can tend to find me buried in one almost any time I have free time."

Hello! My name is Sara, and I am a Psychology major with minors in Sociology and WGSS. I joined PDE not only to help educate others about social justice issues, but to help myself learn and become a better advocate for underserved communities. My two favorite things are a good book and my dog, Rosco!

My name is Scout McKnight. I am an illustration major at UWEC. A reason I joined PDE was to expand the social justice knowledge of others as well as myself. A couple of fun facts about myself are I enjoy making comics and illustrations. I also have two cats named Gibbs and Sherlock.

I am a sophomore from Milwaukee, WI. I am majoring in English education and minoring in psychology. I joined the team of interns at PDE because I am passionate about incorporating equity, diversity, and inclusion into our campus culture and improving the overall climate. Outside of school, I care deeply about social justice and intersectional feminism. I try to do my part in advocating for social movements that push for reform in these areas.
