In case you missed it, Catalyst recently shared exciting news that our Board of Directors named Lorraine Hariton as Catalyst’s new President & CEO. She officially assumed the role on September 1, 2018.
Lorraine, a steadfast advocate for the advancement of women in the workplace, brings a strong and diverse background in technology, innovation, and partnering to Catalyst. Her extensive career includes senior-level positions in Silicon Valley, as well as leadership roles across the private, nonprofit, and government sectors.
Lorraine served as CEO of two Silicon Valley start-ups and has held senior executive roles in public companies.
Most recently, she was Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships for the New York Academy of Sciences, where she was instrumental in creating the Global STEM Alliance and its 1000 Girls, 1000 Futures program, a global mentoring initiative to help girls pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
As Special Representative for Commercial and Business Affairs at the US Department of State, Lorraine established The Global Entrepreneurship Program, the WECREATE program for women entrepreneurs, and the Secretary’s Council on Women’s Leadership.
She has also served on several boards of organizations committed to the advancement of women in the workplace, including the UN Women Global Innovation Coalition for Change, the Stanford Clayman Institute for Gender Research, and Watermark.
To welcome Lorraine, Catalyst is hosting an intimate lunch for Supporters in Houston, TX. We hope that you can join us!
