GIA, in conjunction with the Harvard Business School (HBS), hosted a four-day global leadership program for 44 senior executives representing gem and jewelry firms from 15 countries at the Harvard campus in Cambridge, Mass from April 28- May 1. The custom curriculum was based on the renowned HBS case study method and examined topics ranging from strategy to customer centricity, challenges facing the industry to leading high performance teams.
The program’s initiative was to bring together leaders from around the world representing different sectors of the gem and jewelry industry to help further develop senior management expertise.
“Developing innovative programs like this to meet the needs of our global industry directly supports our public benefit mission of protecting the gem- and jewelry-buying public,” said Susan Jacques, president and CEO of GIA.
The next GIA global leadership program will be held in June 2015.
