Join your WJA community in a conversation about how to compassionately navigate social media when addressing racial justice issues.  Public relations expert Temi Adamolekun and jewelry designer Lauren Harwell Godfrey will answer questions facilitated by best selling author and feminist activist Kate Schatz. The panel will explore how social media engagement can positively and negatively affect our Black community. It's common to join in showing support for social justice and human rights issues by posting on our personal or business pages. Let’s come together to discuss successful approaches and mistakes we may encounter online.

Lauren Harwell Godfrey

Lauren Harwell Godfrey is the founder and designer of Harwell Godfrey, a bold line of fine jewelry based in San Francisco, California. With aesthetic roots in ancient textiles and ethnic patterns, the collection is handcrafted in 18k gold with precious gemstones, powerful inlay and vivid enamel. Designed with healing energy in mind, each gemstone is thoughtfully selected to enhance the wearer’s experience. From literal references to the Four Elements to figurative references to block printing and weaving in cultures from long ago, the collection brings a sense of history to modern day precious heirlooms. No detail is left unfinished: most pieces even feature delicate engravings on the backs, reinforcing the intentions of the design with beautifully-rendered motifs.

As a lifelong jewelry lover, Temi is also a GIA Diamond grad and this year, for the second year, Temi co-lead the Marketing module for The WJA's Jewelry Loupe.
