Levels of Certification

THREE LEVELS OF CERTIFICATION
EDGE ASSESS, EDGE MOVE, EDGE LEAD

Organisations can become EDGE certified for their commitment to workplace gender equality and progress through three stages of certification – Assess, Move and Lead – in their journey to achieve excellence in workplace gender equality.

So Why EDGE?

The EDGE certification provides corporations a much needed tool to guide them in their goals of enhanced diversity and gender equality. It helps organizations identify the headwinds that slow them down and block progress. In ways not previously available, they can now use the certification to capture the tailwinds and speed up their ability to make more rapid progress on these important initiatives. Companies now have the necessary information and measurements to focus on the key drivers of change.
