Please take a look at her recent TEDx Talk, titled "Conscious Consumerism Is the Road to Economic Empowerment."
We believe beautiful and meaningful jewelry starts with responsibly sourcing high-quality materials and continues through the creation of the final piece of jewelry. Our team sources our stones from vendors we know with locality as a primary focus whenever possible. We are devoted to better understanding the social and economic impact of the sourcing and processing of stones and metals so that we can create positive change along the supply chain as much as we can know.
We are committed to sourcing only high-quality raw materials with integrity. Precious and semiprecious stones and high quality metals of high values are rare and uncommon. We value traceability. That’s why, to start with, our stones are sourced from countries through high standards. One of our partners is Turquoise Mountain, a renown non-governmental organization dedicated to transparency and artisan community support. We source quality local materials whenever possible, and work with artisans and organizations we trust. We build long-term relationships across the supply chain to create stability and success for all. We also strongly believe in investing in the local communities in which we operate through local hiring and sponsorship of scholarships for girls.
We believe that a successful company has a responsibility to the greater community. We are proud of our actions toward supporting nonprofit organizations in regions where we have worked, including Turquoise Mountain in Kabul, Afghanistan. We sponsor scholarships for girls in the primary school in Kabul, Afghanistan through the leadership of Turquoise Mountain.
Our company is only as strong as our team, and we prioritize building and nurturing a culture of excellence across our operations. From the artisans who handle the production of Katherine's designs, the small business artisans of our partner Turquoise Mountain, who provide the first quality control at the Turquoise Mountain facility in Kabul, to our team of craftspeople in New York City's Diamond District and our intern, we are proud of our team and know that they share our collective values of respect, inclusiveness, excellence and responsibility.
We value diversity and inclusion because we believe each of our employees can make a unique contribution to our company and the Katherine Parr brand.
