EDGE Americas and Brightworks Consulting announced today a new strategic partnership combining their deep expertise and decades of experience in workplace equality solutions.

Brightworks is a woman-owned consulting practice empowering organisations with state-of-the-art strategy and design.

“There is an emergent demand for best practice solutions that solve for equity in the workplace, especially as industry designs the future of work,” said Christine Gannon, CEO of Brightworks Consulting. “Brightworks, as a collaborative partner with EDGE, has the ability to strengthen organisations that are driven to solve for equity in the workplace with a formal industry certification to support that mission. This alliance provides the next level of evolution on the path to an inclusive and equitable workforce.”

Client organisations will receive comprehensive data analysis, strategies for improvement and implementation support as they work towards achieving EDGE certification for gender and intersectional equality.

“Around the world, EDGE accelerates progress toward equality for organisations by delivering a holistic strategy proven to enhance performance, improve culture and attract and retain talent. By partnering with Brightworks in the United States, we are strengthening this approach and providing a deeper, more rigorous level of implementation support with a team of experts who know firsthand what it takes to move the needle toward more equitable workplaces,” said Patricia Milligan, CEO of EDGE Americas.

This exciting new partnership is endorsed by the Foundation for Female Equity and Inclusion, a global non-profit whose research fosters the mission of a more equitable workplace.
