Brainstorm for #IWD2019

Catalyst Can Help Your Organization Celebrate #IWD2019

This year's theme is #BalanceforBetter. How do you want to celebrate?


  • Plan to attend the 2019 Catalyst Awards Conference and Dinner: Join Catalyst on March 14 to honor the 2019 Catalyst Award winners and celebrate women's contributions to the world. We're gathering a prestigious group of speakers and attendees at the New York Hilton Midtown for a full-day Conference and gala Dinner. See you there!

  • Join our webinar: Sign up for this webinar taking place on the eve of International Women's Day to learn the steps you and your organization can take to create a more inclusive workplace for all individuals, and hear about the resources you can use to make this happen.

  • Speaking Engagement: Catalyst experts can join you for a discussion on a variety of topics such as inclusive leadership; myth-busting around the gender gap; mentoring and sponsorship; work-life effectiveness; employee resource groups; unconscious biases; women on boards; Millennials, and more.

  • Roundtables: Offer employees the opportunity to meet with your Chief Human Resources Officer or Chief Diversity Officer at a roundtable and gather meaningful feedback from them.

  • Leading Women Panel: Catalyst can facilitate a panel featuring senior women leaders from your organization talking about their career experiences. Consider inviting clients as well. Add a visual component by playing Catalyst’s “Barriers” video to kick off your event.

  • Host a Speed-Mentoring Event: Bring together high-potential women and senior leaders for 10-minute mentoring sessions.


  • Donate: Give to an organization that supports women and/or girls.
