Each spring, Catalyst hosts its signature fundraiser, the Catalyst Awards Dinner, in New York City. This gala dinner, a public celebration of the year’s Catalyst Award-winning initiatives, is one of the most prestigious and broadly attended events in the business community. Catalyst annually recognizes innovative organizational programs with proven, measurable results that promote the recruitment, development, and advancement of all women, including diverse women. At this event, Catalyst presents the Awards to the CEOs of companies with winning initiatives in front of a sold-out crowd. View the 2012 retrospective including videos and the Dinner Program.
