The workshop, etitled ‘Talking Sustainability: How to turn your CSR actions into effective stories’, will be hosted in the IJL Academy and will explore the challenges jewellery businesses face on how to speak to employees, customers and consumers about responsible sourcing and business practices.
The workshop will be hosted by jewellery specialist, Carina Schlesing, who has many years experience of working in CSR compliance in the luxury jewellery and watch industry.
