Growing up on a gravel road in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Deborah Gillis was instilled with little ambition beyond the practical need to earn a living. Nothing in her background suggested she would eventually become head of a global organization, advising some of the world's most powerful businesses on how to expand opportunities for women.
Joining Catalyst in 2006, Deborah quickly demonstrated her operational savvy and strategic vision by introducing several new initiatives, and spearheading a global growth strategy. In 2014, she became the organization's first non-American president, and the first internally appointed.
Deborah's journey is not only inspiring, it is full of lessons that can be applied to your own life and career. Working hard, taking smart risks, and aligning herself with supportive mentors, she has exceeded all expectations. And her success has not been without its challenges: from her humble beginnings, to surviving breast cancer, to excelling in male-dominated environments.
A recognized advocate and expert on expanding opportunities for women and business, Deborah has made the mentorship of professional women a personal priority. As President and CEO of Catalyst, she is helping organizations transform their culture, and individual women exceed their own expectations. Join us on June 9 for invaluable inspiration and practical advice on moving your own career ahead.
