Reproductive Healthcare and Equity for Women in the WorkplaceMay 16, 2022
A Message From Catalyst
As advocates for gender equity in the workplace, we at Catalyst believe that women, and everyone, must have the individual freedom and equal rights to choose the personal and professional paths they wish to follow. Healthcare decisions are deeply personal.
Access to the full range of reproductive healthcare is critical for full and equal participation in the workplace; it enables people to show up, stay in, and advance at work. Limiting or removing access to reproductive healthcare will exacerbate inequities.
We are committed to providing our Supporters with the research, tools, and resources needed to navigate this issue and the difficult conversations around it, as we recognize that people hold different points of view on reproductive rights.
For 60 years, Catalyst has challenged gender bias and systemic barriers to women’s progress in the workplace. Closing the pay gap, paid leave policies, workplace flexibility and prioritizing childcare are important actions employers can take to better support women and parents in the workplace. Our mission to accelerate progress for women through workplace inclusion remains more urgent than ever.
