Carnival Corp. & plc is supporting Catalyst’s Now Is the Moment—Be a Catalyst campaign, which has raised $21m toward its $25m goal.

The funds will support research and programming to help Catalyst, a global expert in accelerating progress for women through workplace inclusion, and its supporters to advance women’s leadership in the global workforce.

Closing the gender pay gap, more women on boards

The campaign theme — Now Is the Moment—Be a Catalyst — underscores the effort to achieve the organization’s goal of tangible progress toward advancing women in the workplace, to close the gender pay gap, to lead for equity and inclusion and to advocate for more women on boards.

‘We are incredibly grateful to our campaign co-chairs and all the generous supporter organizations, including Carnival Corporation, and individuals that have committed to giving Catalyst the foundation for a successful campaign launch,’ said Lorraine Hariton, president & CEO of Catalyst. ‘These corporate leaders have embraced this moment to step up and accelerate progress for women.’
