Major Gifts Campaign

A Message From Our President & CEO
Now Is the Moment. Be a Catalyst.
This is the theme for our Catalyst major gifts campaign, which reflects the urgency of this moment to act: to achieve bold, tangible progress in advancing women in workplaces globally.

I’m so excited to be leading Catalyst at this critical time. We have the opportunity, financial investment, and commitment from our Supporter organizations to help close the gender pay gap, empower men to advocate real change for women, to transform how organizations drive equity and inclusion, and ensure women are a part of defining and leading the workplaces of the future.

Our vision is to support bold leaders executing bold solutions to make meaningful change for women in the corporate world. We are proud to partner with all the organizations that have committed to investing and given us the foundation for a successful major gifts campaign.

Lorraine Hariton
President & CEO


Now Is the Moment. Be a Catalyst.

Donations to the Now Is the Moment. Be a Catalyst campaign will support research, programming, and solutions in these four focus areas:

Advancing Women

We’ll provide the tools and recommended actions needed to increase the representation of women in corporate leadership and promote equal access to career opportunities. This focus area addresses the gender pay gap, board diversity, gender equity and inclusion data, International Women’s Day, and the Catalyst CEO Champions For Change initiative.

Women and the Future of Work

Among the prominent thought leaders on the topic of women and the future of work, we continue to develop solutions for women and underrepresented groups to have full participation and equal opportunity in the 21st-century workplace.

Lead for Equity and Inclusion

Through research and data-driven insights, we will address inequities across intersections of gender, ethnicity, ability, and cultural backgrounds, transforming how organizations cultivate equity and inclusion in the global workplace.

MARC (Men Advocating Real Change)

We will engage men to leverage their influence to advocate for gender equity in the workplace and develop actionable approaches to advance equity through effective gender partnership.


Catalyst has raised an organization-record
