Show Notes: Kevin Oakes
Lorraine Hariton, President, CEO & Director of Catalyst
Catalyst, as an organization, has evolved over many years starting in 1962 when our founder Felice Schwartz started Catalyst. She was looking at how she, a college-educated woman, after putting her children in school, could go into the business world. And of course, the world that she faced was very different than today. There were very limited options for women. She was looking at how women could have part-time roles. But over the years Catalyst evolved. It started out helping individual women advance in the workplace and then we moved to really focus on how do we create an environment, a workplace that really can work for women, which is really our focus now. Today we partner with over 500 multinational companies, about 40 of them are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, who are currently on my board. And we do three things: We provide research around what it takes to build workplaces that work for women; we provide learning products and tools that help companies advance women in the workplace; And then we have a very broad community. We bring them together around events and learning from each other. We focus on a number of different areas, on how to create inclusive workplaces, we focus on how to engage men in the prospect of doing that. We look at the future of work, we look at intersectionality and the different aspects of your identity and how it affects you. And of course, all the different levels in the organization.
