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™ is an initiative that works to increase the number of women on corporate boards by implementing practical solutions to address key barriers that even the most qualified women board candidates face.
Smart organizations understand the need for boards to be representative of customers, shareholders, and stakeholders. Catalyst’s initiative enables women to advance—and companies to build—a pipeline of women, especially women of color, for governance positions.
With global workplace equity now more important than ever, today Catalyst supports and also challenges boards while helping to create greater opportunities for board-ready women.
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.
