PJ-Digital-March

Professional Jeweller has teamed up with the Women’s Jewellery Network (WJN) to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Turning the day into a month long celebration, Professional Jeweller asked the WJN to guest edit the March edition of the print publication and shed some light on some of the issues the organisation exists to tackle.

As a female-run and female-focused group, the WJN champions equality, diversity and inclusion – subjects you will be able to find inside the pages of the March issue of Professional Jeweller.

Our editor says: “This issue marks fives years of working for Professional Jeweller and I have to say – it is one of my favourites. It was such a positive experience working with the WJN board on this and I hope the trade enjoys reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

“This year’s International Women’s Day subject to ‘Each For Equal’ and I think everyone has a part to play in ensuring their industry is breaking down barriers that prevent equality for all. With this issue, I feel Professional Jeweller is doing its part to champion change and celebrate women within the jewellery sector.”
