At Women In Lighting (WIL), we strongly support gender equality. The majority of us in the UK lighting industry believe there is a fair gender balance in our workplaces. We have started to look into figures; would those numbers confirm our thoughts? Is gender balance strictly about numbers or even about equal pay, gender bias, and sexual discrimination? We launched #womeninlightingUKfacts, a project collecting data in the lighting industry as a whole, from consultancies to manufacturers, from artists to workers. The resulting comparative statistics will aim to take stock of the data as a starting point for open talks.
