For more than a century, The Junior League has empowered women to lead. We've built transformational female leaders who've set bold goals, opened their circles, disrupted convention and changed the conversation for the betterment of civil society.

On our journey, we've tackled some of society's most intractable problems, from human trafficking to the destruction of our natural environment, from domestic violence to juvenile justice, just to name a few. And, we've done so alongside teams of influential, passionate community partners, government officials and dedicated change-makers who have been resolute in working to find solutions–to find a way forward.

Diversity and inclusion is one of the most critical issues of our time. And while we don't have the answer as to how to "solve" it, we know it deserves our unwavering and steadfast commitment to find the best way to live together with respect, appreciation and understanding. It forces us to ask how to best address issues openly and honestly. No matter who we are. No matter where we live. No matter what we personally believe.

And so, in true Junior League fashion, we invited others to join us in this important conversation. We assembled an impressive array of internal and external voices to help us explore the landscape of diversity and inclusion today–to share their insights and experiences, and to surface the challenges and opportunities they see in their respective worlds and spheres of influence.

During the week of November 13th, 2017, these voices took over our Instagram feed, engaged their social followers and ours and ignited conversations still sparking interest today.

When it comes to diversity and inclusion, multiple voices are important because no one voice can possibly solve such a complex challenge. And that's the good news. Because it means that every answer, any answer, is pointing us in the right direction–that each of our voices, individually and collectively, can make it better.

See where others are coming from, and share your own thoughts on Twitter and Instagram. Because we're all part of the solution. Because #progressisplural.
