Katalyst Group is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion where all employees and individuals we represent are empowered to express and be who they are.
Katalyst Group is dedicated to the fair and equal treatment and representation of individuals and recognize the benefits in which diversity brings to organizations as a whole and the formation of teams in which we collaborate and share ideas. We celebrate and embrace the uniqueness of each and every Katalyst Group employee, consultant, and individual we represent. We believe that it is through diverse life, academic, and professional experiences that enable innovation and creativity. At Katalyst Group, we insist on a safe environment where there is ongoing opportunity for growth, within a culture welcoming self-expression and exploration.
It is the collective sum of the diversity in a ‘room’ that form the high-performance teams in which Katalyst Group is known. We invest in our employees, and they trust us to be part of a work culture that continuously celebrates individual perspectives, life experiences and unique talents – all of which reflect who we are as an organization and our success attracting and retaining a diverse workforce.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
Katalyst Group’s diversity initiatives extend beyond our organization to include those organizations in which we provide services. Katalyst Group’s diversity initiatives are applicable, but not limited to, our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees.
Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.
Right to work from wherever employees are most productive.
Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.
