Empowering Our Supporters to Lead
Catalyst provides a powerful array of knowledge and solutions-focused services that enable our supporters to lead in their industries, both regionally and globally. Each of our services is backed by a rigorous foundation of research, as well as years of strategy and implementation expertise.
Vital Signs is available only to supporters. It is an approach to using workforce data and information to assess your diversity and inclusion “health” and drive change. With tools, insights, events, and opportunities to connect with others, we help you diagnose where your organization excels and where it is stuck, taking you behind the numbers, testing assumptions that get in the way, and deepening understanding, so that you can define appropriate goals and create sustainable change.
The Speakers Bureau provides articulate and authoritative experts from Catalyst's executive staff and the experts from our Research and Global Member Services groups. Drawing on our extensive knowledge and wealth of hands-on experience, these speakers regularly enlighten, inform, and inspire corporate, professional, and academic audiences across the globe.
Corporate Board Services (CBS) serves Catalyst supporter organizations and their executives as a leader in the movement to diversify the boardroom. CBS helps the most senior women within Catalyst supporter organizations determine their potential to serve on public company boards, and assists them in formulating appropriate strategies to gain visibility as well as entrée into the boardroom. CBS serves as a referral service, yet works closely with search firms, and many other organizations that conduct searches for board directors.
Consulting Services (CS) provides supporters with trusted advice and actionable insights to build and sustain workplace inclusion. Our strategy experts serve as thought partners, drawing on all of Catalyst knowledge and working closely with clients to diagnose strengths and issues, raise awareness of key opportunities, and develop customized solutions that advance women and meet the organization’s goals. Catalyst can provide the insights and tools to make change because we know what works and why.
Ask Catalyst, a service of the Information Center, is a way to stay on top of trends and get support for those who wish to make change through knowledge. Our highly experienced team of trained librarians creates knowledge products and provides efficient and comprehensive responses to information requests from Catalyst supporters, the media, and public-policy makers.
The Catalyst Employee Resource Leadership Initiative (ERLI) engages and connects Employee Resource Group leaders—for any demographic—across companies, industries, functions, and regions to share ideas and practices while learning how to amplify inclusion. Through a variety of formats including virtual and live events, ERLI trains ERG leaders to drive inclusion within their companies at the individual and group levels. Outcomes for participants include strategies for enhancing the ERG’s business and inclusion impact, a network of external ERG contacts at other Catalyst supporter companies, and skills in inclusive leadership behaviors.
MARC (Men Advocating Real Change) Leaders is an initiative that was designed to engage men as leaders in developing a more inclusive work culture. MARC Leaders empowers and challenges men to make change in the workplace by practicing four key inclusive leadership strategies: engaging others through dialogue; interrupting practices that inhibit inclusion; role-modeling and developing awareness; and building alliances. Participants apply these skills through the half-day to 1.5-day program while engaging in individual and group activities that support diversity and inclusion efforts in their organizations.
