The bold image stating #NoGlassCeiling has been shared widely by those working in the UK jewelry trade, through social channels such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, the body said in a statement.


"Representing the vision of the Women’s Jewellery Network (WJN), the campaign declares that no glass ceiling exists for women working in the UK jewelry industry, and that it’s time to shatter the illusion it ever did.

“We have created #NoGlassCeiling to allow women to visually declare the viewpoint that the so-called glass ceiling designed to hold us back doesn’t exist — what does exist is our shared ambition and determination to grow our careers, businesses and skills to achieve true success in the UK jewelry trade,” said Victoria McKay, founder, Women’s Jewellery Network.


The #NoGlassCeiling campaign ties into the WJN’s first social event on March 8th – International Women’s Day. The Women’s Jewellery Network In Conversation is an evening with leading figures from the UK jewelry and fashion industries, discussing the importance and opportunities that exist for women working in the UK trade.


Hosted in partnership with the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s Creative Links series, the event on March 8will feature jewelry storyteller and influencer Beanie Major, award-winning British designer Alex Monroe and Emma Burgin, COO of the Alex Monroe brand, Juliet Herd editor of Hello! Fashion Monthly, and Kate Flitcroft head of jewelry and silver at Lyon & Turnbull.


“We are thrilled to kickstart our 2018 series of events with a very special evening at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, with a host of intelligent and insightful speakers that represent various facets of the jewelry trade and who themselves prove there is no glass ceiling. It is set to be a lively evening of exciting discussion as we build on the momentum seen globally to support women in achieving their dreams," added McKay....
