The Women’s Jewellery Network (WJN) is calling for an army of ambassadors to help lift its profile and influence in the global jewellery trade.
This International Women’s Day, the female-focused organisation has announced the news that it is looking for a new cohort of ambassadors to join the team, represent the jewellery industry, and help drive the global growth of the organisation.
Ambassadors are being sought for cities and regions across the UK, as well as in jewellery centres in cities and countries across the world including Antwerp, UAE, India and Israel.
The WJN are also seeking sector or expertise-specific ambassadors including Health & Wellness, Legal, Digital & Web, Branding, Career Development, Diamonds – Natural & Lab Grown, Coloured Stones, Fairtrade Metals, Events, Distribution, Manufacturing, Assay, Laboratory & Metal Testing, Education, Omnichannel, Retail, Designer-maker, Fine Jewellery, Security, Insurance, Sustainability, Governance, Transparency, Technology, Fashion, Equipment, Photography and International Markets.
The organisation’s managing director, Victoria McKay, explains:“Jewellery is predominately worn by women and frankly, we want a bigger say in the way that the industry approaches and works with its target market. To do that, we require a variety of ambassadors who represent a range of expertise and showcase diversity across the jewellery industry. The new cohort will join our established ambassadors and collectively they will become the voice of WJN, shaping our conversations and progressing our agenda.”
New Ambassadors should demonstrate an authentic passion for jewellery and be in agreement with the WJN’s new mission, vision and values, which can be viewed HERE.
Whether you are an emerging designer, a CEO, a retail executive or carving your own path in the trade, the WJN is seeking ambassadors who wish to help other women in the jewellery sector to rise.
“This is a significant move for the WJN and a clear statement of intent,” adds McKay. ” The changes made at the start of the year to the Board and structure were the foundations of our global ambitions. In order to lift as many women as possible, we need a strong and knowledgeable team of committed females. Their involvement will be more than a moniker; we will engage them at all levels of the organisations, utilising their expertise and building their profile as we build the organisation’s brand.
“We are seeking women who are either engaged community leaders or who aspire to become influencers within their region or specialism. This is also a fantastic opportunity for women in jewellery to bond together and to use our passion for the benefit of the entire sector.”
