So Why EDGE?

The EDGE certification system provides a milestone in our work on creating corporate gender equality and efficiency. Gender equality is the right and the smart thing to do. Often, gender gaps, for example, in hiring or promotion, are the result of unintentional biases that lead employers to base their decisions on stereotypes rather than individual performance, thus hurting productivity and creating inequity. EDGE enables companies to identify and weed out such mistakes.
