March 2016

C-News: February 2016
March 8 is 2016 International Women's Day, and we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. This year as we mark the strides women have made, we must also acknowledge that progress has stalled on several fronts. Thus the theme for this year’s day is #PledgeForParity. Often, we don’t think we, as individuals, can make much of a difference but in this issue of C-News we’ll offer several ways you and your organization can help women on the path to parity.

Engage MenEngage Men

Women will never achieve parity without the help of men. And as we’ve said before, if you are married to a woman or have daughters who earn a living, their unequal salary affects you too. In fact, advancing women’s equality can add $12 trillion to global growth. Again, that’s $12 trillion! So how can men get involved? MARC’s Call to Action offers four concrete ways for men to make a difference. You can also check out the Actions Men Can Take tool.

What does it take to inspire others, promote a novel idea, or have a difficult conversation? How can you position yourself as a leader through inclusive communication? Our free CatalystX course hosted on will focus on the important role communication plays in inclusive leadership, which is vital to creating an environment where everyone thrives.

The Catalyst Canada Honours annually recognizes exceptional role models for accelerating progress for women through workplace inclusion. In 2016, Catalyst Canada is expanding the program to also recognize a group of Emerging Leaders at its annual gala dinner. These are not executives, but women and men who are driving inclusion from the middle. Nominations for Champions and Emerging Leaders are due March 31, 2016.
