It’s the 30th anniversary of the Catalyst Awards recognizing exceptional efforts that help advance women in business. At tomorrow’s Conference and Dinner, we’ll celebrate initiatives from 3M, BMO Financial Group, and Rockwell Automation. And be sure to look back at the three decades of initiatives that have accelerated progress for women in the workplace.
Important Note: For loyalists and newcomers both, the Conference and Dinner will be held at the New York Hilton Midtown, the first venue change in more than a decade.
