About the Fundraiser
The Women’s Jewelry Association is thrilled to host our second annual Generating Community Impact breakfast fundraiser at JCK Vegas on Friday, June 2nd, 2023 from 8:00-9:30am. This year, our event will focus on disability inclusion and the mindset shift we can make as an industry to foster greater inclusivity up and down the jewelry supply chain.
1 in 4 American adults* are estimated to be living with a disability, and nearly half of those live with a motor impairment*. Join us to learn how your business can champion people with disabilities and raise the bar for greater diversity in our industry. This important and inspiring breakfast will serve as an introduction to the concept of disability inclusion so that you and your business can make a mindset shift and utilize tools to champion disability inclusion, perform better and have higher profitability. In addition, you’ll discover that people with disabilities bring unique skills and perspectives to the workplace. *Disability Impacts All of Us report by CDC, 2022.
