    Lets see if I undersand the question...you have two dimension FKs in your fact table that need to link to the same dimension table "CompanyGender"??? This is a typical scenario in which is handled by creating a "View" from the CompanyGender Table then linking it that way, this is common for "Time" dimensions where the fact table has many date columns.
