National Education fosters awareness and informs decision makers of the changing role and needs of women in the workplace by promoting Catalyst’s mission of advancing women in business and the professions, Catalyst’s research, and services. National Education also includes the execution of strategic plans to expand the reach of Catalyst’s mission in the North American, European and Asian business communities.

The Global Brand and Strategic Communications Department creates and executes strategies to increase Catalyst’s visibility globally by developing and strengthening its brand, products, and services. The Department is responsible for editing, designing, and producing all products, publications, and collateral materials, and for building public education and awareness of Catalyst’s work through media relations, marketing opportunities, and social media campaigns as well as initiatives like the Catalyst CEO Champions For Change.

The Research team conducts applied research to promote gender, racial and ethnic inclusion in workplaces around the world. This research culminates in published studies that include findings from interviews, focus groups, and surveys, as well as company best practices and recommendations for companies and firms creating equitable and inclusive workplaces for women and men.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

While we have made great progress, there is still plenty of work to be done. With offices in Australia, Canada, Europe, India, Japan, and the United States, Catalyst has more than 800 supporting organizations around the world, including companies, firms, business schools, and associations that collectively employ millions of women. Catalyst advocates paid family leave, affordable childcare, and flexible work in order to close gaps in leadership, opportunity and pay worldwide.

Catalyst is adapting to a globally connected world and is expanding its prime audiences through online resources such as e-learning. As we involve more individual allies of workplace inclusion, we become more able to forge real and impactful change.

Our global lens and regional reach allow us to provide our community, the media, and the public with information and advice on creating workplaces that enable women and their employers to succeed.

Our latest findings suggest women are nowhere near the path to parity with men: There has been little progress made at the board level for women, and even less progress in the pipeline for women officers and directors. Our goal is to shine a spotlight on the opportunities U.S. companies are missing to achieve gender balance and show how America stands in stark contrast to other countries where intentional, bold action by businesses and governments is accelerating meaningful, sustainable change.
