Last month, Catalyst proudly honored three organizations for creating change and igniting results that have magnified year over year. 3M, BMO Financial Group, and Rockwell Automation all received the 2017 Catalyst Award for initiatives successfully creating more opportunities for women.
So this month, we’re presenting ways you and your company can make change happen. Whether it’s as large as a company-wide program, or as small as changing how you speak to and about people who are different than you, you can create a world where everyone is included at work. Share this newsletter with your organization and start cultivating change today.
