Corporate Board Services
Diverse Corporate Boards: Good for Women, Men, and Companies
Catalyst Corporate Board Services (CBS) works to increase board diversity by advocating for gender diversity in corporate boardrooms around the globe.
Catalyst Women On Board™
Catalyst Women On Board™ promotes the appointment of women to corporate boards by engaging CEOs and board chairs who are committed to improving board diversity, to mentor and sponsor CEO-endorsed women board candidates. Launched in Canada in 2007 and expanded to the United States in 2015, over 62% of Catalyst Women On Board™ alumnae have been appointed to corporate boards.
The Catalyst Accord 2022 calls on Canadian boards and CEOs to pledge to accelerate the advancement of women in business.
Accord signatories pledge to take the following actions:
- Increase the average percentage of women on boards and women in executive positions in corporate Canada to 30% or greater by 2022.
- Share key metrics with Catalyst for annual benchmarking of our collective progress.
