RJC Launches ‘Gender Equality Toolkit’ at JCK Las Vegas


The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the worlds standards setting organisation for the global jewellery and watch industry, launched its Gender Equality Toolkit at JCK Las Vegas for small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) on June 9, 2022. During the launch held at the Plumb Club Pavilion, RJC also released its 2022 Annual Progress Report.


According to RJC, the launch of the Gender Equality Toolkit further strengthens RJCs commitment to gender equality and offers practical guidance for SMEs to assist them in their journey to incorporate gender equality at the heart of their business strategies. This toolkit is about creating an informative, accessible and easy-to-use tool for anyone, said RJC.


The principle of gender empowerment is more important than ever, and its fantastic to see all the progress made by our members. However, women and girls continue to face discrimination. Industry has a critical role in advancing the rights of women through employment and education especially,” said John Hall, interim executive director of RJC.


During the launch, the RJC also released its 2022 Annual Progress Report, which outlines the success of the organisation from 1 January to 31 December 2021, and highlights how it has supported its over 1,600 members throughout a challenging period for the industry.
