EDGE – Shwe Taung Group


Shwe Taung is proud to be the first company in Myanmar to be awarded a group-wide EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) Certification in 2018, recognising our efforts in creating equal career opportunities for women and men.

EDGE is the leading global assessment methodology and business certification standard for gender equality. Working with nearly 200 organisations in 50 countries and across 23 industries, EDGE evaluates companies’ workplace gender equality performance against global and industry benchmarks. It is a comprehensive assessment that draws on workplace experience and perceptions through employee survey, organisational data, policies and practices.

Shwe Taung, one of Myanmar’s leading corporations, was awarded six EDGE certifications, one for each of their core business sectors. The award follows a rigorous third-party audit, which included a comprehensive review of the company’s gender policies and practices, detailed analysis of company data from the entire workforce of over 7,000 employees, and evaluation of the employee experience and perceptions of career development opportunities.
