2017 Catalyst Awards Conference—International Women’s Day
On March 8, the world celebrates International Women’s Day, the annual commemoration of women’s achievements—socially, economically, culturally, and politically. This year, the 2017 Catalyst Awards Conference and Dinner was held on that special day—and Catalyst was selected as an official charity partner for the International Women’s Day organization in support of their 2017 theme, #BeBoldForChange.
For 30 years, the Catalyst Award has recognized exceptional efforts that help advance women in business. This year, we honored initiatives from 3M, BMO Financial Group, and Rockwell Automation with the prestigious 2017 Catalyst Award.
We, as business leaders, have never had a greater responsibility to be the change. Indeed, our progress will not go any further than where the most committed of us stand. Approximately 800 attendees redefined their leadership, including champions of diversity and inclusion, executives, HR leaders, and other individuals looking to catalyze change for women around the world.
Catalyst and the Catalyst Awards Conference offer a unique combination of thought leadership and proven ability based on over 50 years of experience, the allyship of our global Supporters and Strategic Alliances, and our connections to some of the most powerful organizations and leaders from around the world and all walks of life.
