Jewellery Summit to explore AI, Human Rights, Climate Change

An inaugural State of the Art Jewelry Summit this week will focus on how the jewelry industry is thinking about and approaching issues also challenging many other business segments, including climate change, artificial intelligence, human rights, and responsible manufacturing.

The June 23 summit is the first event presented collaboratively by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the Mineralogical & Geological Museum at Harvard University, and GIA. It will take place at the Cambridge, Mass., museum.

Keynote speakers, panel discussions, and guided conversations will address such major industry issues as sustainability, mining practices, and equity, says co-organizer and RJC executive director Melanie Grant.

“This summit is a chance for us to come together and collectively discuss ways to future-proof the jewelry industry, looking at all the key topics—human rights, consumer desires, renewable energy, sanctions, conflict, art and innovation, even the future of artificial intelligence—and closing with a look at what the younger generation hope to inherit from us, with the Young Diamantaires,” Grant said

“I am really excited about this first-ever summit…the prospect of sharing intellectual resources and where that leads,” Grant adds.

Grant will open the summit along with GIA president and CEO Susan Jacques and museum curator Dr. Raquel Alonso-Perez, followed by a keynote from Harvard geology professor Daniel Schrag, director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment.
