On International Women's Day, we celebrate the achievements of women past, present, and future, and work to create a world where girls have the same educational opportunities as boys, and women have the same economic and employment opportunities as men. We can help create that world simply by opening more doors to women, celebrating their many achievements, and finding solutions that will bring us even closer to parity and greater economic equity worldwide.
In this issue of C-News, you’ll find a series of International Women’s Day webinars; registration is now open for the Catalyst Awards Conference; we highlight the inclusive practices of our 2015 Catalyst Award Winners, Chevron and Procter & Gamble; and celebrate the Fan Favorite winner of our #DisruptTheDefault Video Contest. Did we mention the Pay Gap? Thanks to Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette for keeping this issue in the forefront.
Join keynote speaker Mary T. Barra, Chief Executive Officer, General Motors Company, and hundreds of professionals as we shine the spotlight on winning initiatives by Chevron and Procter & Gamble, as well as discuss inclusion, Millennials, and the role of men in gender equity. And don’t miss Anne Fulenwider, the Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire magazine for the closing session. Register now.
