For more than 20 years, the Catalyst Awards Conference has brought together experts from around the world to share knowledge and shape the dialogue about inclusive leadership and other critical factors related to women and workplaces around the globe. The Catalyst Award annually honors innovative organizational approaches with proven, measurable results that address the recruitment, development, and advancement of women.
The 2017 Catalyst Awards Conference will be held on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City. Approximately 800 corporate leaders and members of the media gathered at this one-of-a-kind event to share innovative strategies, research, and expertise on the subject of creating inclusive leadership, cultures, and workplaces and to learn from the 2017 Catalyst Award-winning initiative(s).
This year's theme is Leadership Redefined!
Gender equality is a central tenet to propelling workplaces and the world to a more inclusive future. We must rethink old definitions and create a new vision, which requires:
- Redefining leadership in how we drive inclusion and equal representation at all levels, in all professions, and in all walks of life, including the home.
- Redefining leadership in how we “show up” on gender-related issues with our consumers and stakeholders and in how we amplify our voices externally.
- And, we are redefining leadership in how we all connect and collaborate across organizations (businesses, NGOs/nonprofits, governments, and society) to amplify and accelerate progress toward gender equality.
