Gender Equality in Action

Event Details
Event Description

This is the era of gender equality. We need to accelerate public-private partnerships which can have a transformational impact for girls and women. Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day with a special edition webinar ‘Gender Equality in Action’ hosted in partnership with United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).

The webinar will feature:

  • an interview with the Executive Director of ISEAL Alliance, Karin Kreider;
  • inspiring case studies from Bulgari, LVMH, De Beers Group, Makal Jewellery ltd, Dimexon, Day’s Jewelers and The Fair Trade Jewelry Co.; and
  • reports and practical tools to support you in your journey towards integrating SDG 5 into your strategy and operations.



  • What gender equality means in 2020
  • Why the empowerment of women is critical to business (economic and social development)
  • How you can make a direct impact on SDG 5 and become a leading force for change in your industry



  • Sue Allchurch, Chief of Outreach and Engagement at UN Global Compact
  • Iris Van der Veken, Executive Director at Responsible Jewellery Council



The jewellery industry has a particularly strong case for supporting women’s empowerment as women drive demand for more than 90% of the world’s jewellery. The growing conscious consumer movement is demanding for more transparency of information and responsible sourcing is growing and gaining market share.

Responsible Jewellery Council has established a range of approaches to promote and advance women empowerment with its members.

Let’s drive change, champion gender equality and empower women.

Thank you for your continued support.

We are #GenerationEquality – together we can make a real difference.
