A Catalyst Canada Honours Champion is a leader who is visibly committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Champions mentor and sponsor women and minorities, challenge the status quo, influence others to advocate for diversity and inclusion, and have a marked impact on the advancement of all women in the workplace, including but not limited to Aboriginals, people with disabilities, members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community, and visible minorities. Through their own unique combination of behaviors, skills, and convictions, champions inspire others to make workplaces and the world better and more inclusive for all.
