Advancing Women

Promoting equal career access for women is a group effort. 

There is still much yet to be done for Advancing Women in the workplace.

Organizations must continue to recruit, retain, and advance women, including women from marginalized groups, at every level. Catalyst provides cutting-edge convenings and resources so that leaders and organizations can evolve their practices, policies, and measurement strategies to achieve greater representation and equity for all.

For DEI Innovators & Pioneers: 2023 Catalyst Awards

The 2023 Catalyst Awards Conference & Dinner (March 30, 2023) is the premier gender equity conference and awards event for advocates of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Corporate leaders from around the world who are intentional about DEI will gather to learn from one another and to recognize outstanding organizational initiatives to advance women in the workplace. 

Increasing women’s representation in the workplace has been a core focus of Catalyst since the beginning. And while we’ve made significant progress, we still have much further to go. Employees that are women of color, LGBTQ+, or have a disability are all less likely to report that their organization is inclusive, accountable, and fair. Catalyst has actionable resources to address this head-on.
