Our vision is to create a world of equal opportunities, a world where men and women are equally valued and respected in all aspects of economic, political and social life.
Our Mission is to use the EDGE Global Certification system to engage organizations across the world in fostering equal career opportunities for women and men across their different gender identities, race/ethnicities, sexual orientations, nationalities, age groups and working with a disability status.
