The HR Blue Ribbon Forum as Human Resources committee was founded in 1994 under the umbrella of the Center for Adult and Continuing Education (CACE) of the American University in Cairo (AUC); now called School of Continuing Education (SCE).
The committee by that time used to meet once a month except July and August. In the meetings, the committee members; Human Resources and Training Managers in the multinational institutions working in Egypt, used to brainstorm all the ongoing HR issues as well as exchanging experience and networking.
In 2008, CACE decided not to keep the BR committee under its umbrella.
The Chair and the committee members requested from EDGE for Training and Consultancy founder to keep the committee under its supremacy as long as the EDGE founder was the one who initiated the idea in early 1994.
It is an honor for EDGE team to keep the BR committee as one of its Edges.
Now, the committee meets quarterly and the meetings are held in one of the members’ premises such as:
- AUC Career Advising and Placement Services Office (CAPS)
- Thomas Cook
- Coca Cola
- Amoun Pharmaceutical Company
One ultimate objective is to support the BR committee for its real value to the members in keeping the outstanding level of networking and exchanging experience.
