Make Real, Meaningful
and Visible Change
Wherever You Are on
Your DE&I Journey

EDGE Empower® has been built to help organizations and investors deliver on their DE&I agenda, with the ultimate goal of changing work and transforming society

Our Story

In 2009, we founded the EDGE Certified Foundation – launching it two years later at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. For the last 14 years, we have given organizations and investors a universally recognizable symbol of commitment to DE&I. In doing so, we realized there was a need for a product that contains all of our expertise, tools, insights, and certification in one place. We call it EDGE Empower.

Our mission is to help organizations certify for gender and intersectional equity in the workplace, wherever they are on their DE&I journey.

Our Vision

Our vision is a more inclusive, equitable and prosperous society powered by gender and intersectional equity.

It means a society where opportunities are open to all – built on a deeper understanding of DE&I.

For organizations, it means they access higher performance by enhancing diversity of thought and intersectional difference at the highest levels of the organization.
