MARC by Catalyst
MARC, Men Advocating Real Change, is a Catalyst initiative designed to inspire and equip men to leverage their unique opportunity and responsibility to be advocates for equity. Our research-based experiential learning disrupts traditional diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) approaches to enhance gender partnership and accelerate the creation of inclusive workplaces.
We are proud to be the recipient of multiple grants, including a $5 million grant from Chevron Corporation, a $2 million grant from P&G, and a $1 million grant from Dow to support our breakthrough work.

The role of men in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has grown significantly in recent years. Yet many obstacles remain. Whether you are looking to implement our programs into your workplace, or would like to learn more about ways in which we strive for change, let us guide you.

From AWARENESS to Action, the Impact is Real
A STRATEGIC APPROACH:
“What I always like to say when we’re talking about these programs is, ‘I’m sorry, and you’re welcome,’ to people who go through this journey with us. Because as soon as you start to really gain that awareness and you go along that pathway, you can’t stop seeing all of the things that perhaps you just didn’t notice before. So, I’m sorry, because now you’re seeing it everywhere. And then the acknowledgement that there is usually gratitude for that awakening.”
- Cristina Santos, Head of Inclusion and Diversity, Sanofi
The strategic approach to MARC’s programming is suited to either a top-down or bottom-up approach. Each organization can find the program and starting point that is best suited to their point in the DEI journey.
