EDGE is the leading global assessment methodology and business certification standard for gender equality. EDGE Certification is designed to help organizations not only create an optimal workplace for women and men, but also to benefit from it.
EDGE stands for Economic Dividends for Gender Equality and is distinguished by its rigour and focus on business impact. The methodology uses a business, rather than theoretical approach that incorporates benchmarking, metrics and accountability into the process. It assesses policies, practices and numbers across five different areas of analysis: equal pay for equivalent work, recruitment and promotion, leadership development training and mentoring, flexible working and company culture.
As an independent, third-party assessment, the EDGE methodology guarantees the integrity of the evaluation and certifications are only awarded after the independent auditors have been able to establish the accuracy of the information.
EDGE is currently working with more than150 organizations, in over 40 countries and 22 industries. The EDGE assessment methodology was developed by the EDGE Certified Foundation and launched at the World Economic Forum in 2011.
