Deloitte LLP has been named a recipient of the 2010 Catalyst Award, an honor recognizing innovative, effective and measurable initiatives to advance women in the workplace. Catalyst, a global nonprofit organization dedicated to building inclusive workplaces and expanding opportunities for women in business, cited the achievements of Deloitte’s Women’s Initiative (WIN), noting it has “created significant change in the company’s culture and provided an engine for innovation, becoming a model for other organizations in the process.” This is the second Catalyst Award presented in honor of a Deloitte initiative. In 1995, Catalyst recognized Deloitte’s Task Force for the Retention and Advancement of Women.
“These initiatives exemplify our Catalyst vision – ‘Changing workplaces. Changing lives, ‘” said Ilene H. Lang, president & chief executive officer of Catalyst. “They impact the lives of employees, families and communities by transforming organizations, and serve as models that inspire and encourage others to embrace inclusive workplaces that benefit women, men and business.”
