A YEAR OF ACTION:

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS ADVOCACY

The overturning of Roe v. Wade presents an unprecedented rollback of reproductive rights and marks a direct attack on our team—over 77% of whom identify as women and 36% are based in the U.S.* It is our collective responsibility to protect one another and put a stake in the ground for what we believe.

We partnered with Don’t Ban Equality, a coalition of nonprofits (including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and American Civil Liberties Union), to form a committee of like-minded brands using our voice and reach to help protect access to reproductive healthcare and advocate for equal rights.

Through fundraising events, community initiatives, and amplification on our platforms, we will continue to mobilize the community and provide much-needed education about the issues at hand.

A Year of Action

“We worked with Mijuri to approach sustainability with social justice in mind including the health and wellbeing of their employees and communities. By working with other brands, this work will help them to use their influence to support women’s access to safe healthcare.”

–BSR

We’ve also expanded the reproductive coverage in our benefits program to include:

No-questions-asked time off

As well as travel and lodging reimbursements for any employees needing to seek an abortion out of state

Coverage of all contraceptives

Full coverage by insurance without cost-sharing

CHARITABLE INITIATIVES

Established in 2020, our Empowerment Fund supports women and non-binary people’s access to skills through traditional or non-traditional education in order to help them design the life they want. Since then, we’ve donated over $324,000 USD in post-secondary scholarships to initiatives such as:

  • Indspire: Building Brighter Futures (BBF)

  • United Negro College Fund (UNCF)

  • Black Business and Professional Association (BBPA)

We’ve also donated $100,000 USD to additional corporate giving initiatives for nonprofits such as Stop AAPI Hate and Stonewall Community Foundation.

Charitable Iniciatives

“This bursary will help me cover some of the expenses of the cost of attending post-secondary school and living away from my family. Becoming a speech pathologist will be so rewarding because speech is an essential part of life, and being able to help a child achieve that will be the best feeling in the world.”

REGENERATION: A REVOLUTIONARY

RE-MINING INITIATIVE

Hundreds of thousands of abandoned mines, deemed “legacy mines,” exist around the world. If left untreated, some legacy mines pollute sensitive watersheds, ecosystems, and native species.

We’re proud Founding Partners and the exclusive jewelry sector partner of Regeneration, a revolutionary re-mining initiative from RESOLVE, dedicated to the rehabilitation of legacy mining sites and the restoration of surrounding natural environments.

Regeneration utilizes modern, efficient mining practices to extract valuable minerals from mine tailings, waste rock, and water surrounding these sites, helping to clean and restore the environment while attaining minerals in a far more eco-friendly fashion.

Not only will these precious minerals help in our global energy transition, but earnings from the sale of these responsibly-sourced materials will be reinvested to help fund habitat restoration and mine closure activities—including at legacy and former mine sites.

Regeneration will also seek to create and trade biodiversity and carbon credits through the rehabilitation of land and the generation of environmental offsets.
