So Why EDGE?

When it comes to closing the corporate gender gap, we feel that there is a necessity to bring new perspectives and bold ideas in order to find effective solutions to not-so-new problems. This is precisely what the EDGE Certification system does: it encourages companies to take a close look into their company culture, structures and metrics. EDGE Certification is a nudge to overcome the current belief systems
