Gem Legacy, an organization that fights for artisanal mining communities, has announced the appointment of three new members to its advisory board.

In addition to Katherine Bodoh, CEO of the American Gem Society (AGS) and AGS Laboratories; Stuart Robertson, research director of Gemworld International; and Sumit Dangi, chief financial officer of Jewelers Mutual Group, Gem Legacy announced the appointment of three new members on Monday.

They will be joining the board of directors, which was established by Niveet Nagpal, president of Omi Gems and Omi Privé, and Jonathan and Brecken Farnsworth, founders of Parlé Jewelry Designs, who were also founding members.

The board members serve as ambassadors for the organization, which is dedicated to assisting communities involved in colored-gemstone mining throughout Africa. They also advocate for the organization's ideas and strive to bring on new partners. Gem Legacy mentioned that they interact with industry organizations and enterprises in order to assist in the formation of alliances.

It is a "exciting step forward" for our industry, for [the organization], and for the communities and businesses that Gem Legacy supports, according to Ben Smithee, CEO of the The Smithee Group, who serves on Gem Legacy's board of directors. “Our new advocates will lead the charge for a unified movement to support the communities that serve as the foundation of our industry.” Smithee said.
