Gender Equality Management Assessment



Physical certificates are hard to store, display, distribute and verify. In order to ease its management, we pioneered GEMA as a blockchain certificate in partnership with 0xcert, a Slovene blockchain tech company. How will this benefit you or your company?

Digitalisation and easy verification

GEMA as a digital blockchain certificate is easy to manage. Digitalisation allows for a simple and efficient way of verifying the certificate’s authenticity and validity. Imagine how much time and paperwork you can save by applying to a call for tender with a digitalised certificate.

Preventing misuse/counterfeits

As soon as the GEMA certificate is written into the blockchain, it is impossible to modify it retrospectively, which effectively prevents its misuse.

Transparency and traceability

Blockchain allows for complete transparency and traceability of the distributed certificates, ensuring they were issued by the Gender Equality Research Institute, the only credible issuer of the GEMA certificate.


The key effect that these benefits have is the credibility brought to the relationship with your clients and business partners by trustworthy and verifiable digital certificates, such as the GEMA blockchain certificate.

GEMA blockchain certificate can be purchased/obtained through Evidenspace platform, which is easy to use and does not require pre-existing technical blockchain knowledge.

Technical background

Evidenspace platform uses blockchain technology as its base. Although this technology is highly complex, it is skillfully hidden in the background of the platform and does not restrict an amateur user from utilising Evidenspace.

The platform is built on Ethreum, a public blockchain infrastructure. This enables the distribution and management of non-fungible tokens (standard ERC-721), digital duplicates of unique physical licenses, such as certificates, diplomas, guarantees of origin, guarantees of authenticity and others.

The issuer of GEMA certificate, Gender Equality Research Institute, issues the blockchain certificate through its business profile on the Evidenspace platform. The certificate is issued as a non-fungible token, which is transferred from the digital wallet of the issuer to the digital wallet of the certificate recipient, based on a smart contract.

Each certificate is defined with metadata, such as the recipient’s name, issue date, expiration date, a unique number, etc. Metadata is encrypted in a 64-digit code within each non-fungible token in the blockchain.

Looking towards the future

Intangible ownership

Blockchain technology is the first in history to offer intangible ownership in the digital world. Often, individuals are not the actual owners of their data or original files and documents they receive. These are actually owned by companies or third parties who store and manage the data on their centralised servers, which can lead to its loss or misuse. By using blockchain infrastructure, all your non-fungible tokens (e .g. certificates and other data) can be stored in a digital wallet which can only be accessed by you.

Digital identity of the company

Various certificates, such as ISO, EKO, credit excellence, GEMA certificate, Family Friendly Enterprise, etc. make up a company’s identity, influencing the way companies build relationships with their partners and clients. By combining trustworthy blockchain certificates, we are creating a digital identity of your company which will reaffirm its credibility to the client.
