Department: Research

Reports To: VP, Research

Location: Remote in United States



We’re a values-driven nonprofit that works with companies to help them build inclusive workplaces that work for women. Catalyst has been around more than 50 years, and our research is widely respected.


Catalyst research is the foundation of all our solutions for creating equitable workplaces. We examine today’s work environments and employees’ experiences in them using a rigorous and innovative research approach.  We use fact-based, scientific methods—including longitudinal panels and large-scale field studies—to explore barriers and measure success.  We deliver primary and secondary research, tools, and knowledge products in four main areas: equity & inclusion, men advocating real change (MARC), future of work, and advancing women.

Come join a fun, flexible and interdisciplinary team with a passion for open dialogue, learning, and living our values.  We share accountability, collaboration, and creative problem-solving leveraged to achieve business goals.


Catalyst is seeking a standout researcher to lead and support initiatives focused on equity and inclusion, particularly at the intersections of gender, race/ethnicity, nationality, cultural background, and other aspects of identity. The Director will build conceptual frameworks, design studies, collect and analyze data, synthesize findings, and create knowledge products for a business audience. Ultimately, this exciting role is responsible for working collaboratively to build an impactful research agenda to help organizations transform how they drive equity, fairness, and inclusion in the workplace globally.
