The Catalyst CEO Champions For Change signatories have committed to advancing more women, including women of color, into senior leadership positions and onto their boards. To hold themselves and their organizations accountable, these leaders boldly pledged to be transparent and share metrics on their progress. This is the second year Catalyst is reporting on how well their companies are living up to their commitments.

The numbers show that Catalyst CEO Champion For Change companies are outpacing their global peers in advancing women:

In addition, Catalyst CEO Champion For Change companies are outperforming their peers in advancing women of color, a particularly underrepresented group. They have a stronger pipeline of women of color in manager positions, and they are ahead of their peers in promoting these women into the executive ranks. They shine in the boardroom, where, collectively, they have more women of color board directors than the top 200 companies in the S&P 500.

"Catalyst CEO Champions passionately believe that what's good for women is good for everyone. They've seen the positive results of increased diversity and inclusive cultures firsthand," says Catalyst President and CEO Lorraine Hariton.
