One of the country’s top employers, Convergys Philippines has committed to achieving certification from Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (EDGE), a world-leading diagnostic and certification system that is designed to help companies create an optimal workplace for women and men. Widely regarded as the global standard for workplace gender equality, EDGE ensures that certified organizations have a structured, systematic approach to measure, track, and close the workplace gender gap.
EDGE certification is part of the initiatives being implemented by the Philippine Business Coalition for Women’s Empowerment (PBCWE), where Convergys is one of the seven founding members. Launched in March 2017, the PBCWE is one of the local business coalitions that will become a voice for workplace gender equality in their respective industries and act as important advocates for women’s economic empowerment. The coalition is also part of “Investing in Women,” an initiative of the Australian Government to accelerate women empowerment and drive inclusive economic growth in Southeast Asia through partnerships in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Myanmar.
