Women of Color

Research shows that women of color—Asian, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and multiracial—experience exclusion, discrimination, and bias within the workplace. Too few women of color are represented on corporate boards, and many experience an emotional tax at work. These Catalyst resources include research and actions you can take to address these obstacles and make your workplace more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
