Celebrating the Diversity of Our Signet Team

02 / 01 / 2022

Published by Mary Liz Finn, Chief People Officer, and Colleen Rooney, Chief Communications & ESG Officer 


Every day at Signet, we work hard to bring to life our Purpose of Inspiring Love. Nowhere is this more evident than inside Signet where we continuously take steps to ensure all our team members feel valued, included and celebrated. 

We take pride in how our organization embraces the values of diversity, equity and inclusion. Our commitment to an inclusive workplace is also a key component of our business strategy. It:

  • Makes us more agile/innovative, and helps our team members bring their whole selves to work 
  • Encourages innovative perspectives
  • Mirrors communities in which we do business

And, for these reasons, we believe it’s a real competitive advantage. We know this goal has no end – it’s continuous and we learn and grow each day with the help of our 26,000 team members. 

When our work gets recognized by our team members or by external organizations that we respect, it’s an opportunity for us to pause and celebrate what we’re building, and to assess where we still need to grow.

This week we’re proud to have received two such recognitions:

The GEI’s global criteria measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. 

The GEI is a high standard we hold ourselves to, and we’re proud of how many females we have lending their perspective and ideas to our company. In fact, women comprise:

  • 42% of our Board of Directors
  • 53% of our Signet Leadership Team  
  • 42% of those holding the title of VP or above 
  • 75% of Store Assistant Managers or above 

The CEI is the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. CEI’s detailed criteria assesses companies based on four central pillars:  non-discrimination policies across business entities; inclusive benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families; supporting an inclusive culture; and corporate social responsibility. 

In our first year participating in the CEI, we learned a lot as we aim to welcome LGBTQ+ team members and do our part to enable them to thrive. This year we were pleased when 93% of our team members said they felt people at Signet are treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation in the Great Place to Work® Trust Index© Survey. In recent years, we’ve:

  • Enhanced and expanded health-plan benefits for same sex domestic partners/spouses
  • Expanded our parental leave policy to include parental leave for all genders
  • Initiated our Signet Pride Business Resource Group

We gladly add these recognitions to our other workplace milestones that we’ve celebrated over the past year, including:

As we continue to find ways to Inspire Love for All, and for our Planet and Products, we get to Inspire Love within our team. There’s nothing more inspiring than that!
