Catalyst CEO Summit

A Community of High-Level Leaders

CEO Summit

The Catalyst CEO Summit promotes the advancement of women into leadership roles through confidential, candid conversations designed to inspire new insights and actions that will make a difference. This unique forum for in-depth dialogue allows high-level executives to convene with Catalyst experts, Catalyst Boards, and other champions. Sessions range from small, informal dinners to gatherings of 60-100 executives. 

Each CEO Summit has a theme that engages the greater business community, builds on Catalyst’s extensive expertise, and addresses local and cultural needs. For example, the 2011 Catalyst CEO Summit in New York focused on “Getting Past Stuck,” and helped participants generate insights about the barriers still preventing talented women from rising to the most senior positions within organizations. The Catalyst CEO Summit – Europe, held in June 2012, focused on “New Rules, New Dialogue” and resulted in insights on the shifting landscape of talent management and workplace inclusion in Europe.

The CEO Summit makes a difference both by inspiring participants to action, and by extending and deepening Catalyst’s knowledge. While conversations that take place during the CEO Summit are confidential, we distill insights, share them more broadly, and use them to inform our work. In this way, we—and the CEO Summit community—create sustainable wisdom and positive change.

The most recent CEO Summit took place on December 17, 2013, in New York City. Insights from the event were captured in the following infographics:
