The Junior League of the Palm Beaches, along with 136 of 291 chapters has committed to The Association of Junior Leagues International’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative. During the summer of 2018, The Board of Directors implemented the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force which will make efforts to ensure that JLPB is fully devoted to emphasizing and commending the diverse group of women who make up their league.
Led by JLPB Board Member Marcelle Burke and past JLPB President Shelly Albright, the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force of ten diverse league members began their initiative by adding a diversity and inclusion commitment statement to the JLPB mission statement which reads “The Junior League welcomes all women who value our mission. We are committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals, organizations and communities.”
