United States

Catalyst was established in the United States in 1962 by Felice N. Schwartz, a passionate activist who believed that women were an untapped resource who could help meet the United States’ growing labor shortage. Now, we are the leading nonprofit organization accelerating progress for women through workplace inclusion. Our community of Supporters includes the Catalyst Board of Advisors, a group of high-level executives from leading companies who help guide our direction.
