Edge Certificate 2024

Winner of the Global EDGE Certification for gender equity and inclusion

Decemberpeople

A world-leading gender equity and inclusion programme.

In 2023 we became the first pan-European bank with a Global EDGE Certification for gender equity and inclusion – made possible by our accelerated efforts on diversity and inclusion at our banks in Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, and Serbia. In further recognition of our commitment to DE&I, these countries joined our already certified banks in Italy, Germany and Austria in championing gender equity and obtaining their EDGE Certifications

EDGE Certification is the leading global standard for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, centred on a workplace gender and intersectional equity approach. To achieve this certification, our banks underwent rigorous third-party review of representation across the succession pipeline, pay equity, the effectiveness of policies and practices, and the inclusiveness of our Culture.

UniCredit is setting an example for sustainable business practices in Europe. I am proud that we have become the first banking industry organisation to hold EDGE Certification in 10 countries, and the first pan-European bank with Global certification. Being a champion in gender diversity, equity and inclusion is an integral part of our culture and reinforces our commitment to a clear set of principles and values as a crucial component of our continued business success. The rich diversity within our team creates the inclusive environment needed to provide best-in-class solutions to our growing client base across Europe."

UniCredit’s achievement in securing global EDGE Certification is a business game-changer. Starting with five of its business entities in 2022 and now expanding to include six more to cover more than 80% of its total workforce, UniCredit demonstrates a deep commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as a driver of sustainable success. Their global certification speaks volumes about their trust in EDGE as a voluntary standard and independent certification. It is also a strategic move to leverage a diverse talent pool, setting new benchmarks for an inclusive and equitable workplace for all. By becoming globally EDGE Certified, UniCredit is not just creating a heart warming narrative; they are pioneering the future of business – diverse, equitable, inclusive, and exceptionally innovative. Congratulations!"
