Toronto, ON (March 8, 2018) - Cadillac Fairview is recognizing International Women’s Day 2018 in a bright way— by lighting up its buildings at Toronto-Dominion Centre and RBC Centre and the city’s skyline with the female symbol to shine a spotlight on women in the workplace. At sundown in Canada, the United States, UK, Peru and Colombia, dozens of major companies located in some of the world’s most iconic and influential city structures will join Catalyst, a global nonprofit focused on empowering and accelerating women in business, with a light display to demonstrate the collective power of global leading companies that are creating workplaces that work for women.


“Cadillac Fairview is proud to partner with Catalyst and two of our key clients, TD Bank and RBC, along with dozens of global leading companies to recognize International Women’s Day and shine a light on women in the workplace through the Catalyst Skyline Takeover,“ said Norm Sabapathy, Executive Vice President of People, Cadillac Fairview.


“Our skyline takeover is a visual realization of the business community’s commitment to women’s advancement in workplaces around the world,” said Tanya van Biesen, Executive Director, Catalyst Canada. “When the buildings light up—and people see these companies taking a firm and visible stand for gender equality—our hope is to show an undisputable beacon of solidarity among business leaders and spark a conversation that accelerates much needed change in workplaces.”


We invite all people to be positive agents of change within their own communities and companies, and encourage advocates to join the global conversation by sharing the Catalyst Skyline Takeover GIF and using hashtags #SignOfProgress, #CatalystForChange, #WorkplacesForWomen and #IWD2018.
