Since 2000, Catalyst has worked in Canada to address the unique concerns of Canadian women in business through research, education, and events. The Catalyst Canada Honours annually recognizes individual champions of women in business. The Catalyst Accord 2022 is a call to action for corporate Canada to increase the representation of women on their boards and in executive positions. The Canada Advisory Board is a group of executives who help lead our strategy. Contact us at [email protected].
