Our Advisory Councils

The EDGE Certified Foundation Board is supported by two expert Advisory Councils – a Global Advisory Council and an Academic and Scientific Advisory Council – to help ensure that the EDGE Global Standards stay aligned to the organization’s values of credibility, rigour and impact.

The Councils bring strategic thinking, critical insights and specialized expertise to help EDGE Certified Foundation achieve its goals.

Council members are selected based on their unique skills and experience to augment the knowledge of the EDGE Certified Foundation Board.
