Diverse Corporate Boards: Good for Women, Men, and Companies
Catalyst Corporate Board Services (CBS) works to increase board diversity by advocating for gender diversity in corporate boardrooms around the globe. Catalyst's research series The Bottom Line shows that companies with the greatest gender diversity on their boards financially outperform, on average, those companies with the least gender diversity, which aids in the success of women and business.
The Catalyst Corporate Board Resource connects leadership from organizations with open board positions to potential women candidates. The Corporate Board Resource offers the opportunity for Catalyst member CEOs to sponsor qualified women from their own networks into directorships.
For member companies whose executive women are interested in serving on a corporate board, CBS offers readiness assessment, and advice on how to prepare to be a viable board candidate. Women interested in this service should email their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catalyst members operate in countries throughout the world, working with Catalyst to expand opportunities in the workplace and advance women into senior leadership and decision-making positions. Catalyst Census Partners are tracking progress for women on boards and executive suites around the world.
