Global Professionals

In 1997, Catalyst launched a groundbreaking longitudinal study of the career experiences and outcomes of high potentials from around the world. This series has enabled us to sort myth from reality around persistent gender gaps in corporate leadership. We invite you to sign up to participate! To join, simply click the ‘Register’ link on the upper-right corner of the page and fill out our very short form.

By joining our Global Professionals Community, you will provide firsthand insights into the challenges and opportunities to achieving inclusive workplaces where women and men have equal opportunity to reach their full potential in the workplace.


  • Help us to identify and craft individual and organizational strategies that will lead to inclusive workplaces for both women and men.
  • Gain access to these strategies and other tips that will enable you to take action—whether to advance your own career or to be a champion of positive change in your workplace.


  • Helping to shed light on relevant, actionable strategies that can engender equal opportunity and inclusion in the workplace.
  • Learning how to better harness the full range of talent and become a more innovative, productive organization.

Members of the Global Professionals Community will receive occasional invitations to participate in brief Catalyst surveys. All participant data will be kept strictly confidential, and no personally identifying information will be included in any report.
