The Junior League of Philadelphia’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee
In keeping with our stand to welcome all women who value our Mission, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee brings together members of JLP who are engaged in diversity outreach and educational initiatives, surrounding, but not limited to: race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation. The committee meets monthly to discuss, communicate and create league-wide initiatives and events that support the goal of enhancing the environment for diversity, inclusion, and equity across JLP. As events and incidents occur in our local community, state-wide, or at a national level, the committee serves as a resource for opportunities for learning and advocacy for those members who choose to participate in this way.
Our work aligns with the efforts of The Associations of Junior Leagues International, and we have adopted their D&I Commitment Statement: The Junior League welcomes all women who value our Mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diversity individuals, organizations, and communities.
