The Women’s Jewellery Network has launched a comprehensive survey in gender equality within the global jewellery sector. The survey was created by WJN Research and Insights Director Kathryn Bishop and covers satisfaction at work, workplace support, recruitment, career progression, organisational ethics, and sustainability, as well as personal ambitions. The survey is aimed at women, however, WJN are encouraging individuals of all genders from across the trade to complete the questionnaire.
Commenting on the survey, Managing Director Victoria McKay said: “We are very conscious that there is a lack of specific and relevant data on the experience of employees within the UK jewellery trade.
We want to provide the trade with an annual barometer; we’re also keen to ensure that our work in improving diversity and increasing inclusion is based on as much empirical data as possible. At the moment, we’re forced to adapt generic national data; we’re very conscious that the jewellery trade, although a microcosm of the UK landscape, will have its own nuances. We’re also keen to hear as many experiences from outside of the UK, as our vision is very much a global one.”
The survey contains around 100 questions and WJN estimate that respondents should set aside 20 minutes to complete it.
The survey is available for completion via any of the WJN’s social channels or via their website: @wj_network on Instagram and @wj_net on Twitter; search Women’s Jewellery Network on Facebook and LinkedIn.
