For Its Employee Journeys and People Strategy Initiatives
Congratulations to Eli Lilly and Company on their 2019 Catalyst Award win for initiatives that help create safe and inclusive workplaces where women can advance. Their holistic approach to mapping the employee experience gives its employees a voice and a passion to strive for more.
From Catalyst’s release: “Using storytelling and experience-sharing to address employee-reported biases and barriers, this global initiative focuses on “moments of truth” and creating a common language to help employees understand one another’s experiences. The transparent workplace culture has led not only to a strong network of allies and champions, but also measurable results—from 2015 to 2017, women’s representation increased from 29 to 40 percent in the C-suite, and in the U.S., women of color at the senior director level increased from 6 to 11 percent.”
