Honoring Excellence for More Than 30 Years
Has your organization made positive changes to its workplace culture that advance women and diverse groups? Has this work made an impact—and do you have results to prove it? By applying for the Catalyst Award, your company or firm will benefit from an external perspective on your organization’s diversity and inclusion efforts, and demonstrate its commitment to being an employer of choice.
At the annual Catalyst Awards Conference and Dinner, we recognize innovative organizational initiatives that address the recruitment, development, and advancement of all women, including diverse women. Since 1987, Catalyst has recognized 98 initiatives at 89 organizations from around the world. These groundbreaking diversity and inclusion programs have changed workplaces, communities, and lives.
After a rigorous examination of candidates’ initiatives, Catalyst conducts intensive onsite evaluations at select organizations to establish its winners. Winning initiatives must show proven, measurable results that benefit women across a range of dimensions, among them race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, generation, nationality, disability, and Indigenous or Aboriginal peoples.
