How You’ll Thrive
Catalyst is a global organization with headquarters in New York and offices in Canada and Europe and boots on the ground in the Asia Pacific region. We have a strong virtual workforce who can deliver results from anywhere. We nurture and support talent from diverse backgrounds and covet unique perspectives and ideas. Our values as an organization: Respect, Collaboration, Accountability, and Impact. We develop each other through frequent HR contact, individualized plans and goals, budgets for courses to acquire or strengthen skills, collaboration and communication within departments and our staff at large, and company-wide events.
Catalyst strives to be an employer of choice, and flexibility is a critical tool to achieve this end.

Diversity and Inclusion at Catalyst
Diversity and inclusion are our bread and butter: central to our values, our long history, our vision, our strategies, and our continued success. Catalyst has a long-standing history of commitment to diversity and inclusion that is reflected in both external recognition and internal efforts. All of our efforts are designed to help us attract, recruit, select, develop, and retain the most talented and diverse people from the broadest range of people, backgrounds, and perspectives. We seek superlative people from diverse backgrounds and traditions who vary by their race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, culture, religion, marital and family status, current unemployment status, physical and mental abilities, age, veteran status, genetics, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local laws. Together we create and maintain an atmosphere that welcomes new ideas—even unpopular and controversial ones—and encourages an effective and active exchange of views in an environment of mutual respect. We also strive to remove sources of unconscious bias, and will seek to correct situations where a full and open exchange of ideas has been limited.
Equal Employment Opportunity
