Since 1901, The Junior League has remained resolute in its mission to empower women leaders to set bold goals, open their circles, and change the conversation for the betterment of civil society. On our journey, we've tackled systemic issues alongside teams of influential, compassionate community and corporate partners, government officials and dedicated change-makers who have been resolute in finding solutions. Together, we have improved lives. Together we have strengthened communities. Together, we are better. #JLBetterTogether #JuniorLeague #JLGP

Looking back fondly on photos from our Centennial Celebration Tea a few weeks ago. It was a great day of socializing and also a wonderful opportunity to recognize our community partners Arm In Arm NJ Rise HomeFront Mercer Street Friends & 3 Helping Hands. To top it off we had some spectacular fascinators in show with the winning look seen fluttering atop the head of one of our gracious hostesses, Denise Frederickson. Thank you to Denise and Geniva Martin for co-chairing a lovely event, and thank you to all of our sponsors. #FBF #JLGP #Centennial

According to a study by Deloitte, 83% of LGBTQ+ individuals have felt the need to cover, or downplay elements of their identity and self, while in the workplace in order to better fit in and succeed. This PRIDE month, let’s focus on creating a better sense of belonging for all by uncovering and creating a space that promotes inclusion.

Though there is not an official Equal Pay Day for members of the LGBTQ+ community, there is still a disparity for members of the LGBTQ+ community when it comes to pay. “According to the Williams Institute, women in same-sex couples have a median personal income of $38,000 compared to $47,000 for men in same-sex couples.” (https://www.thetaskforce.org/equal-pay-is-an-lgbt-issue/). Additionally, “Male-to-female transgender workers can see their earnings drop by nearly a third, says research published in the B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy.” (https://www.macleans.ca/society/for-transgender-women-the-pay-equity-gap-is-even-wider/). #JLBetterTogether #JuniorLeague #JLGP

In April, the JLGP honored three local high school seniors who received Voluntarism Scholarships. Annually, the JLGP awards three $1000 scholarships to female high school seniors who have demonstrated a strong commitment to community service and voluntarism. This year’s recipients – Ria Bajaj of West Windsor High School South, Julia Kline of Neshaminy High School, and Ishva Mehta of West Windsor Plainsboro High School North– were chosen from an applicant pool of very accomplished students. These young women exemplify the spirit of volunteerism. Each student, in her own way, saw a need in her community and used her talents and resources to improve the lives of others. From tutoring under-privileged children, to teaching children with special needs gymnastics, to helping kids with autism, these talented young women led the charge to help their communities.
