A Collective Statement From BIPOC Designers in the Jewelry Industry

Posted on August 03 2020

I am so proud of the jewelry designers in my industry!

An open letter to the jewelry industry was recently penned by BIPOC jewelry designers to demand equity and long-term commitments to change.

These commitments include:

  • Invest in inclusive curriculum for schools and design programs
  • Create more educational opportunities in training for BIPOC designers
  • Offer opportunities including paid apprenticeships, scholarships, and jobs
  • Increase retail shelf space for BIPOC designers
  • Employ people of color in all positions of the jewelry industry
  • Acknowledge inspiration that originates in POC cultures, traditions, and historical pieces
  • Increase art school scholarships and recruitment of BIPOC students 

 

For a full list of detailed commitments check it out here.
