April 3, 2012 — A person who is a catalyst acts on the simple idea that women and men should have the same societal, economic, political, and life opportunities. You may be a CEO, middle manager, or new hire. It doesn’t matter—you can be a catalyst.
This simple but powerful message ran through Catalyst’s exhilarating two-day 50th Anniversary Celebration—from the 2012 Dinner Video, to the informative panel discussions, Catalyst Award winner presentations and our three new social media initiatives: Men Advocating Real Change (MARC), Get Even, and the I Am A Catalyst video campaign.
The entire Catalyst staff worked tirelessly to put together the two-day celebration, and I’d like to thank them for their talent, good cheer, and success. And of course, we couldn’t have done it without all of you—our Catalyst supporters.
As we enter our 51st year as an organization, I look forward to working together to foster a future where women and men are valued equally in the workplace and beyond. This future won’t just “happen”—we need to make it happen… right now.
