Global Research Website Redesign

The global nonprofit leader in expanding opportunities for women and business, Catalyst asked MSDS to help create an online platform that would transform how they interact with audiences around the world. Their goal? To move from a research-driven organization with a one-way broadcasting model to one that connects & collaborates with its membership of thousands around the world. Together, we built the platform to get them there.

Most importantly, MSDS is a flexible & creative collaborator who asks the right questions so we stay focused on strengthening our strategic positioning.”
