Gender Equality (SDG 5)

Be the change.

Gender equality is integral to all dimensions of inclusive and sustainable development within the jewellery and watch industry. In short, a better, fairer world for all cannot be achieved without stakeholders from all levels of the supply chain coming together to generate meaningful change for women and girls around the world.

How RJC Promotes Gender Equality

RJC has been promoting gender equality for over 15 years as part of its commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Find out how we regularly get involved in generating awareness and meaningful change for women at all levels of the jewellery supply chain.

Generation Equality - SDG 5 in Action

This ongoing collaborative project between RJC and a wide range of partners, such as the Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO), was created to promote the importance of private sector action to advance gender equality. The working group has implemented a platform for information sharing through a series of global and regional roundtables, workshops and training sessions, thus facilitating the exchange of ideas on how to further accelerate progress on gender equality.
