An Evening of Celebration

Each year, Catalyst celebrates Catalyst Award-winning initiatives in front of a sold-out crowd at one of the most prestigious and broadly attended events in the business community. The 2016 Catalyst Awards Dinner took place on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City and honored Gap Inc. for its initiative, Women and Opportunity

In addition, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, was present to receive a special commendation from Catalyst. Prime Minister Trudeau’s historic first cabinet includes equal numbers of women and men. His simple explanation for his actions, “because it’s 2015,” has become a mantra even as we move into a new year. #BecauseIts2016 #YouHadMeAtTrudeau

Leadership Redefined!

The 2017 Catalyst Awards Dinner, International Women's Day, March 8, 2017, will recognize the 30 Anniversary of the Catalyst Award with the evening's theme, 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.
