The COUTURE Diversity Action Council Opens Applications for the Next Class of Mentorship Program

The application deadline is February 6 by 12pm EST.




(PRESS RELEASE) The application window has opened for the next class of mentees in the two-year mentorship program created and administered by the COUTURE Diversity Action Council (DAC). Designed to promote Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) within all facets of the jewelry ecosystem, the program offers education, access and guidance to a new group of designers. In addition to being paired with a mentor for one-on-one consulting, the mentees will also receive weekly or bi-weekly education via Zoom with a host of experts on various relevant subjects, which also helps establish a strong sense of community among the mentees. Knowing that the barriers to entering the jewelry industry are high, the DAC remains committed to providing access, fostering talent and amplifying the voices of BIPOC designers through its mentorship program.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
