In truly inclusive organizations, diverse groups of individuals contribute fully, grow meaningfully, and feel a strong sense of belongingness to the organization. Companies that emphasize organizational inclusion in their strategic initiatives can unlock innovation and improve business outcomes. On June 28 Catalyst held its first business conference in Japan, Beyond Women’s Advancement: Diversity and Inclusion as a Business Strategy—Solutions Summit Featuring the Catalyst Award.
Incorporated in 2014, Catalyst Japan provides Japanese companies with diversity and inclusion expertise and solutions acquired through more than 50 years working with leading organizations around the world. That expertise also serves as the backbone to Catalyst’s robust recognition programs, including the prestigious Catalyst Award. Since 1987, the Catalyst Award has recognized breakthrough corporate initiatives that have accelerated inclusion in the workplace and the world and produced measurable results.
