What does “Catalyst” mean?
A Catalyst (カタリスト) is an agent for change.
A Catalyst is dedicated to making change for women and the workplace. You understand that when workplaces embrace all leadership talent—regardless of gender—that businesses, society, and lives change for the better. You can make a difference. You can make change happen. You can be a Catalyst.
