International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month 2024

#TheCatalystEffect

Celebrate leaders who create positive transformation in the workplace.

I invite our global Catalyst community to participate this March during Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8). We excitedly introduce the Catalyst Effect, which illustrates how the collective acts of individuals committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and rewarding work environments can create waves of systemic transformation.

We invite our Supporters to participate by sharing your photo on LinkedIn, nominating your women colleagues, and amplifying their achievements.

Access the Supporter-only toolkit with opportunities to share and uplift our collective impact, attend the public-facing IWD webinar on March 5, and join us at the premier gender equity conference — Catalyst Awards, on March 12. The Catalyst Effect represents the energy and approach we are bringing to 2024. Together, let’s highlight the impact of women at all levels to bring positive transformation in the workplace.

Thank you for being part of the Catalyst community. You are #TheCatalystEffect.
