Getting the Competitive EDGE with Gender Certification

November 06, 2013

By Megan Beyer

When companies have more women in leadership, they make more money.  It is nice when the economy rewards the good guys -- even when they are women.

Watch the video 

  A new tool called EDGE Certification does just that: it delivers profit for parity.  Economic Dividends for Gender Equality -- EDGE Certification -- is a stamp of approval signaling a corporate culture ripe for a diversity dividend.  It lets companies grow their own leaders by fixing the expensive leaky pipeline. Women often fall out of the corporate pipeline at mid-career before ascending to the highest levels. And yet studies show that once women start to populate the highest ranks of a company, it is good for the bottom line.

Men: The final phase of feminism

October 29, 2013 Bonnie Erbe'

The final stage of feminism is something I call, “masculism.” If women are ever to reach true parity, men must be on board. These are the conclusions I’ve reached after spending time this week at a US Institute for Peace Symposium on Men, Peace and Security.

I coined the term masculism to describe the male version of feminism. According to research produced for the symposium, and contrary to popular opinion, men are not innately much more prone to violence than are women. This finding alone is trail-blazing and defies common stereotypes. Further, men’s engagement in violent conflict is seen by researchers as a form of victimization of men, much as women are victimized by male chauvinism.

Getting the Edge

October 29, 2013 Senator Kirsten Gillibrand at the EDGE luncheon

Iceland continues to  rank first for women’s equality according to a  World Economic Forum survey of  136 countries..  The United States ranked 23rd, down one slot from last year.   The WEF metrics help countries know where they stand towards closing the gender gap.  

Gender equality is also a significant goal for corporations because its not only the right thing to do, it’s good for the bottom line. But how can companies measure progress?  A Swiss Foundation says it has a method that enables large businesses to gauge advancement regarding gender equality.  The EDGE Certified Foundation just announced the first companies to be certified to the EDGE Global Standard for workplace equality.

UN Women Ad Campaign

October 27, 2013 Bonnie Erbe'

BY BONNIE ERBE'

If you haven’t seen the series of powerful ads created this week by UN Women, you should take a look. (http://www.unwomen.org/en) The gender equality arm of the United Nations commissioned ad agency Ogilvy & Mather Dubai to produce the campaign. It’s executives typed in provocative phrases such as “women cannot”, “women should,” “women need to,” and “women cannot” and used Google’s autocomplete function to see what followed. Google was used (as opposed to Chrome or DuckDuckGo or others) because it is the world’s most popular search engine.
