Brainstorm for #IWD2018

Catalyst Can Help Your Organization Celebrate #IWD2018



  • Plan to attend the 2018 Catalyst Awards Conference and Dinner: Join Catalyst on March 20 to honor the 2018 Catalyst Award winners and celebrate women's contributions to the world. We're gathering a prestigious group of speakers and attendees at the Hilton Midtown in New York City for a full-day Conference and gala Dinner. See you there!

  • IWD Webinar: Join us for a live webinar on International Women's Day to learn from senior leaders and role models as they share insights and strategies for building inclusive workplaces and accelerating careers.

  • Speaking Engagement: Catalyst experts can join you for a discussion on a variety of topics such as inclusive leadership; myth-busting around the gender gap; mentoring and sponsorship; work-life effectiveness; employee resource groups; unconscious biases; women on boards; Millennials, and more.

  • Roundtables: Offer employees the opportunity to meet with your Chief Human Resources Officer or Chief Diversity Officer at a roundtable and gather meaningful feedback from them.

  • Leading Women Panel: Catalyst can facilitate a panel featuring senior women leaders from your organization talking about their career experiences. Consider inviting clients as well. Add a visual component by playing Catalyst’s “Barriers” video to kick off your event.

  • Host a Speed-Mentoring Event: Bring together high-potential women and senior leaders for 10-minute mentoring sessions.


  • Donate: Give to an organization that supports women and/or girls.
