- 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

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.
