      Catalyst Receives Largest Grant in Organization's 50+ Year History

Engaging male leaders has never been more critical to real, sustainable

support men's engagement—Catalyst announced ( 
) it has received a $5 million grant from Chevron Corporation that will support 
Catalyst's breakthrough MARC (Men Advocating Real Change) (

across gender.

"We are expanding our partnership with Catalyst to support an initiative that 
is helping Chevron create a more gender-inclusive workplace, and that we 
believe can benefit other companies around the world," said Michael Wirth, 
Chevron's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the 2019 Catalyst 
Awards Dinner ( 
). "We are honored to accelerate this important work. This grant proves once 
again the power of partnership—how with commitment and dedication, real change 
is possible."

"This is the single largest grant we've received in our organization's 50+ year 
history. Companies like Chevron and leaders like Mike Wirth, who make diversity 
and inclusion a business imperative and take real, tangible action, are leading 
by example," said Lorraine Hariton, President & CEO of Catalyst. "We are 
excited to continue strengthening our partnership with Chevron, and we 
challenge others to join Catalyst and Chevron in creating inclusive workplaces 
that allow everyone to thrive."

MARC engages men and women in deep, honest dialogue where men gain insight, 
empathy, and personal motivation to take action to improve gender equity in the 
workplace. The grant will directly support the global expansion of MARC Leaders 
) Catalyst's transformational, immersive training program. It will also support 
the rollout of MARC Teams ( 
) to Catalyst Supporter ( 
) companies across the globe, creating a grassroots collective approach that 
helps men apply their influence to effect positive change in the workplace with 
respect to gender equality. Under Mr. Wirth's leadership, Chevron was an early 
champion and pioneer of the MARC Teams strategy, recognizing the power it can 
have in building self-awareness, fostering individual inclusion skills and 
ultimately sustaining a culture of inclusion across the organization. Finally, 
the Chevron grant will allow Catalyst to continue its groundbreaking research, 
programming, products, and events aimed at engaging men in gender equity and 
inclusion efforts.
