The Research



The Engaging Men in Gender Initiatives research series is the foundation for MARC. While women make up almost half of the workforce in many parts of the world, the most senior roles in the largest businesses are still overwhelmingly held by men.

As such, men have a critical role to play in leveling the playing feld for all talent, but they are often an untapped resource in gender diversity initiatives.

To address this, Catalyst’s Engaging Men in Gender Initiatives research series offers evidence-based advice about the most effective ways to partner with men in ending gender inequalities at work.
