EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) developed the world’s leading assessment methodology and business certification standards for gender equality.
The EDGE certification process is designed to help organizations create an optimal workplace for women and men and to assist them in taking full advantage of the benefits of gender equality. The EDGE methodology encompasses five main areas: equal pay for equivalent work, recruitment and promotion, leadership development training and mentoring, flexible work schedules and company culture.
Partnership with L’Oréal:
In 2014 L’Oréal began the EDGE certification process for subsidiaries in India, Brazil, the United States, Russia and other countries. In 2017, EDGE renewed certification for Australia, Brazil, Canada, India and Russia.
