London Diamond Bourse launches mentor programme

The London Diamond Bourse has launched its inaugural mentor programme designed to provide support to students and newcomers in the diamond and jewellery industry.

One of the key features of the programme is the provision of a designated expert mentor to each participant.

These mentors, who possess extensive industry experience and a deep understanding of its intricacies, will engage in monthly one-on-one meetings with their mentees.

The programme aims to facilitate a “seamless transition” for students as they enter the industry.

The programme also offers a range of educational resources designed to expand the participants’ understanding of the diamond and jewellery trade.

These resources will be made available through curated workshops and seminars delivered by industry experts alongside the company’s ‘Diamond Practical Knowledge’ course.

Lastly, programme members will have exclusive access to a series of networking events where they can connect with established professionals.

Membership to the programme available on an annual basis, at £300 per year, or on a monthly basis for £30 inc VAT per month.

Charlotte Rose, who is leading the initiative, said: “Our Mentor Programme aims to empower and uplift the next generation of talent in the diamond and jewellery industry. We’re looking to foster their personal and professional growth, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in their chosen careers. By bridging the gap between education and employment, the programme ensures that mentees are well-equipped to embark on a successful career trajectory.”

Alan Cohen, London Diamond Bourse president, added: “Mentor-based training programmes are essential for knowledge transfer, skill development, personalised guidance, networking and career advancement. They foster a culture of learning, collaboration and professional growth. We are delighted to be able to provide support in this manner to the next generation of industry professionals.”
