The Nigerian Exchange Group Plc, better known as NGX has reportedly bagged Economic Dividends for Gender Equality certification.

NGX has now become the first exchange group globally and the first indigenous Nigerian organisation to be EDGE certified.

According to a report by BusinessDay, the exchange company was certified at the EDGE Assess level, which highlights the progress the company has made on diversity, equity, and inclusion and its commitment to ensuring equal opportunities across its talent pool.

EDGE is the leading global standard for diversity, equity, and inclusion centred on workplace gender and intersectional equity approach.

The source further explained that the certification process involved employee surveys, analysis of group-wide workforce statistics, focus group discussions, and a rigorous third-party audit of all data provided by the company and its policies and practices related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In his speech, the Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Oscar Onyema appreciated the group for the certification.

He said, “We are thrilled to have achieved yet another first in our efforts to promote gender equality and champion Africa’s sustainable development.

“This certification demonstrates our dedication to creating an inclusive, equitable, and diverse workplace. At NGX Group, we believe that diversity and inclusivity are fundamental to our success. With the EDGE certification, we now benefit from being verified against global best standards as we continually measure and benchmark progress around gender equality.”
