She has led cross-cultural studies on perceptions of women's and men's leadership, as well as diversity and inclusion strategy and practice. Currently, she spearheads Catalyst's research and programs on engaging men in gender equity initiatives. Dr. Prime has also worked professionally as an organizational development consultant, with specialties including workforce analytics, diversity and inclusion, and talent management strategy.

Building High Performing Teams Certification Workshop
Dr. Gordon Curphy & Dr. Dan Fisher
Dr. Gordon Curphy and Dr. Dan Fisher are teaming up to deliver a two-day certification workshop on April 17/ 18, 2014 in New York City. We were privileged to welcome Dr. Curphy in October 2013 when he came to present his work with leadership teams. The model on which the workshop is built was co-developed with Bob Hogan and published in 2012. Since it came out, the model has proven to be highly effective and successful with teams.
