Meeting new people and forming meaningful business relationships is the hallmark of the Women's Jewelry Association and its world-wide network of members.
For the past eight years, the Women’s Jewelry Association has hosted an annual celebration called Jewelry Night Out. Chapters in cities throughout the world have brought together members and prospective members on ONE NIGHT to celebrate jewelry and share the value of being part of the WJA community.
In 2020 WJA went 100% virtual and hosted Jewelry Night In on Thursday, September 10, 2020 to mark our biggest month of membership.
During the event participants learned about the future of WJA programming and how being part of the organization gives you the tools you need to succeed in your career. Guest speaker Caryl Capeci, CEO of Chow Tai Fook/Hearts On Fire, shared her leadership journey, and her belief in community and mentorship as some of the keys to her success!
