Additional background info: As an extension of its commitment to women’s professional advancement, in 2017 WJA established a working group dedicated to the research and development of advocacy-related programming: The WJA Gender Equality Project. Aiming to improve the jewelry and watch industries broadly, the project will implement a strategic plan that provides education, tools, programs, outreach and events for an inclusive audience; designed to reach men and women in every jewelry trade sector.
