Committed to Creating Transparency and Responsibility in Jewelry Supply Chains

We're assembling the world community, teaching and learning, creating relationships throughout the supply chain, launching initiatives, and providing the space and context for attendees to become active participants in change.

"Pay What You Can" Virtual Conference 

Times are challenging, and we want everyone to be able to attend. If you can't pay this year, we understand. Join us anyway! If you have something to contribute, we really do appreciate it. 

There are four different tickets, but the only difference between them is how much you choose to pay. All tickets are all-access tickets. The prices are:

• Free

• $50

• $100

• $200

All funds go to the Responsible Jewelry Transformative, the 501(c)(3) organization that produces the Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference, and which is devoted to supporting initiatives to make the jewelry supply chain more equitable, safer, healthier, and more sustainable for people and communities around the world.



Does $0 feel like too little, but $50 feels like too much? Or maybe you want to give more than $200? We've got you covered!

You can donate any amount you like here.
