Leadership Redefined!

The 2017 Catalyst Awards Dinner will recognize 30 years of Catalyst Award-winning initiatives 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.
