The Women's Jewellery Network has launched a new online digital platform.
This new, interactive space is a place where jewellery professionals can connect, communicate, engage and network – and its now free to all WJN Essentials members.
The channel, provides WJN Essentials members with a space to share images, video and editorial content, connect with people of all genders across the globe through IM, ask questions or launch polls and engage in hot topic debates and online/offline events.
Commenting on the latest WJN initiative, Managing Director Victoria McKay said: "When we launched the Essentials package, we announced further packages would be imminent. We've been working on this digital community for the past few weeks, with a view to launch as part of our premium offer.
"Then the world changed. Covid-19 has had and will continue to impact and change the way we work, rest, play and connect for the next few months, leading to an entirely 'new normal'. We decided to speed up the delivery deadline and offer free access to the community for all members, for at least the next six months. Now more than ever, we need to connect with our communities and share our thoughts, hopes, dreams and advice."
Members on the free forever Essential tier also receive a monthly news round-up, as well as a commitment to receive WJN news before general release.
Victoria added: "We're really proud to be able to offer this platform to our friends, colleagues and peers across the trade. And it's their platform, whatever their gender. We want our community to take ownership and to shape its future and evolution."
