Catalyst speakers

IWD charity of Choice, Catalyst, provides diverse speakers representing diversity, equity, and inclusion research

Champions of the shared idea.

Catalyst’s Speakers Bureau believes in the power of knowledge and of community. We champion the voices of those who have expertise, and those who listen. We connect leaders with communities of purpose-driven leaders to address a wide range of topics related to workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Now is the moment to lead with inclusion.

With breakthrough technologies, social movements, globalization, polarizing politics, and the #MeToo movement, diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace cultures are more important than ever. Companies and leaders must ensure their organization uses all their diverse talent to remain innovative and competitive now—and in years to come. Policies and promises aren’t enough; there needs to be bold, meaningful action to create a future where women—and all employees—can thrive.

Catalyst’s Speakers Bureau rosters motivational keynote speakers that leave the stage having made an impact, a difference in the audience, and a desire to do more and achieve more through inclusive leadership behaviors. Whether you are looking for an inspirational message or highly spirited panel discussion, engage us to suggest professional speakers to meet your corporation, association, or event’s needs.

Enhance Your Diversity Program or Event

If you’re hosting an event for your company or group, having one of our motivational speakers there will make it an engagement to remember. The importance of diversity and inclusion is on everyone’s mind, and we feature experts in the subject. Whether your goal is to highlight workplace diversity or to have an open forum discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion, we have a roster of speakers for you to choose from.

Booking these event speakers is a great way to integrate diversity programs with a company event. We have highly recommended speakers who are experts in multicultural awareness, gender roles and breaking boundaries.

Having a keynote speaker who is an expert in diversity speak at your event is a great way to address issues in the workplace and to educate people on how to be more inclusive and understanding. If you’re looking for an emotionally engaging, uplifting and eye-opening experience for your attendees, then contact us to book one of our professional diversity speakers.
