Celebrate International Women’s Day with the Catalyst Effect

Catalyst knows that a single drop can create a ripple in a body of water.

But what happens when a collective of individuals committed to diversity, equity, and respectful and rewarding work environments create a powerful force that leads to a massive wave of change?

This is what Catalyst calls the Catalyst Effect.

For more than 60 disruptive and innovative years, Catalyst has supported systemic change for women in the workplace.

In 2024, with new and relevant research, cutting-edge products, actionable tools and practices, and world-class events that meet the moment, Catalyst enables its Supporter companies to act as catalysts for change within their organizations so that women can thrive, stay, and perform.

During Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8), Catalyst elevates women at all levels who create positive transformation in the workplace.
