WJA UK Chapter calls for industry views on career progression and ambition

WJA Chapter Logo

The Women’s Jewelry Association UK Chapter is putting a call out to the jewellery industry to help shape its provision of industry-focused mentoring, events and career development for women working in the jewellery trade. 

Now in the final stages of formation, the UK Chapter has created a dedicated online survey for members of the UK trade — whether female or male — to share views on what the UK Chapter should provide.

The survey [here] will offer vital insight for the WJA’s UK Chapter, and will be available to answer online for one month.

Victoria McKay, director of the WJA UK Chapter, comments: “We’ve created a short survey that will enable you to have your say on what the WJA UK Chapter can do for you and your business.

“Your feedback is incredibly valuable and will enable us to plan a calendar of events and networking opportunities that will make a difference to the careers and support of women in the industry, whether students, apprentices, designers, retailers or business directors.”

The WJA UK Chapter formed in spring last year and has received overwhelming interest from the trade and those wishing to become members.

Working closely with the US headquarters of the WJA over the past year, the UK Chapter will officially launch this spring with an event in London – details of which will be announced soon.
