A catalyst is an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action, at a faster rate or under different conditions; an agent that causes activity, inspiration and enthusiasm between people. Exactly like some chemical reactions wouldn't be feasible, or fast enough, without a catalyst, some social changes necessitate a successful individual, or a group, to engage and make their community better; this is what makes them catalysts for change. Egyptians have been catalysts for change on many levels and in a variety of disciplines, and now the perfect time to share this with the world.

The American University in Cairo (AUC) is a diverse community, full of inspiring ideas, success stories, achievements, and endless opportunities shaping the world. Our belief in the grand history of AUC and the fact that it has been a powerful Catalyst for Change through its contribution to the intellectual growth of Egypt’s leaders motivates us to launch our third event, Catalyst for Change, to feature the most prominent Egyptians and AUCians and how they have been, and continue to, shape the world and mobilize for social change in the region. Our event comes to feature their inspirational stories, and give our audience the opportunity to discuss, network, and learn from their achievements.
