The Global Edge Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is a bustling month filled with crisp air, changing leaves, and Halloween candy on grocery store aisles. However, this month is more than just pumpkin spiced lattes and costume preparation, it’s a month to recognize a devastating disease affecting thousands of Americans each year: Breast Cancer.

 The Global Edge supports the campaign that Breast Cancer Awareness Month has, which is to increase awareness of the disease. With 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and an estimated 42,260 deaths (41,760 women and 500 men) from breast cancer in 2019 (cancer.net), it’s necessary that men and women become more aware of the disease and highlight the importance of breast awareness, education, and research.

With social responsibility being one of the core values at The Global Edge, and being a woman-owned company, we understand the significance supporting such causes may have.

Devynn Dayton, an employee at The Global Edge, has a mother who is currently battling severe breast cancer. She said, “I’m glad to be a part of a company that recognizes and supports causes that are near to their employees’ hearts.” She continued by saying, “Though the process of my mother battling breast cancer has been long, painful, and emotional, it’s encouraging to have a community who is so     supportive.”

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign taking place from October 1st-31st, involving thousands of organizations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.

Diversity and Inclusion Luncheon With Women’s Energy Network Houston

Yesterday, August 21, 2019, five members of The Global Edge team attended the Women’s Energy Network Houston (WEN) Luncheon. The luncheon included a well-informed panel with the topic of discussion being “Diversity and Inclusion”.

The Global Edge is a top diversity supplier and being a woman-owned business, we truly appreciate and encourage diversity and inclusion. Our team was enthusiastic about the opportunity to learn more on the topic and have the chance to network with industry experts.

The panel included four speakers in the energy industry from various backgrounds and cultures: Kristan Crapps, Arquella Hargrove, Joanne Howard, and Mark Zorbas. All four brought their knowledge and first-hand experience about diversity and inclusion, and how it is necessary for a business to maximize it’s potential.

Not only is diversity and inclusion necessary to provide creativity and new ideas, but it is also a lead factor in a successful company.

Arquelle Hargrove expressed this well when she stated, “Diverse companies out-perform non-diverse companies by 35%”.

The panel continued their discussion by talking about how diversity and inclusion is not accomplished in one meeting but is created by making it a company value. “It needs to be the same standard as safety” explained Kristan Crapps.

All four speakers highlighted how although there have been great strides in promoting diversity within businesses, there is still room to grow.

“Women are only 22% of the C-suite workforce,” Mark Zorbas told us.

The Global Edge is proud to highlight that our CEO, Kathy Eberwein, is a part of that 22%, but recognizes the need for that number to grow. Inclusion and diversity with gender, race, culture, and ethnicity will only provide companies with a greater ability to maximize their potential and growth.

The Global Edge encourages diversity and inclusion and understands how vital it is to any business. Being a global woman-owned business, we understand that diversity and inclusion only enhances big ideas, and creates a stronger team resulting in better results. We are an equal opportunity employer and strive to promote excellence among our diversity initiatives. Check out our careers.

Global Edge Gives Back: Play With Purpose Sports September 21, 2019

On September 21, 2019 dozens of young athletes, 10U-17U boys and girls, will be participating in a basketball tournament to raise funds for orphans, at-risk youth, and children with cancer.

The Global Edge is excited to help support this program and are passionate about the Play with Purpose mission. Social responsibility is one of Global Edge’s five core values and it is at the heart of several programs we support throughout the year. We could not be more pleased to partner with a program whose values are aligned with our vision as a company and support causes that are near and dear to many employees at The Global Edge.

Play with Purpose Sports has a two-fold objective: to encourage young athletes to develop selfless attitudes while they follow their passions, and to use their athletic talents to raise money for orphans and at-risk children locally and worldwide.

This program is designed so that athletes secure sponsors who commit to a dollar amount per stat that the athletes achieve in upcoming games, tournaments or competitions. The stats are tracked through a phone app, “Play with Purpose Basketball”, that was developed and launched to support this initiative. The athletes notify their sponsors on how much to donate via the Play with Purpose Basketball app. Options to pay a flat dollar amount and not per stat are also available. You can also pay your pledge directly online.

Global Edge has been supporting Play with Purpose Sports since the launch of the program. Our CEO, Kathy Eberwein, helped create the concept for this program with the main director, Karen Boyd, after they traveled together with their two sons in Zambia, a country that has one of the highest orphan rates in the world. The two boys, ages 10 and 9 at the time, became aware of the adversities these children were facing and decided to use their passions for sports for the better good. These boys continue to participate with Play With Purpose and will be competing in the in the upcoming tournament.

The Global Edge team is particularly excited about the Super 32 Charity Classic they are putting on this year to help raise funds for children in need. Please join us as we support Play with Purpose Sports.
