  • The Creation of Brave Girl Rising

    By Jeni Yaghoubi, Citi Global Branding & Sponsorships March 22, 2019 12:45 PM

    The task before them was far from simple: create a film about a real young woman pursuing her education in one of the world’s largest refugee camps. But you can only film for 4 hours a day inside the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, because it closes to outsiders at 1pm for fear of security breaches. You also need armed officers to accompany you at all times and translators who speak Somali, Sawhili and English to the staff and predominantly Somali refugees, who play themselves in a movie about their lives. And you need to explain what a film is in the first place to people who most likely have never seen one. Yet who, despite the odds, continue to dream and persevere with courage and conviction.

  • Financial Inclusion at Scale

    By James Forese, President of Citigroup and CEO of the Institutional Clients Group March 13, 2019 09:45 AM

    Most of us can easily comprehend the economic and social case for financial inclusion, but to develop solutions that meet the needs of underserved households, we need to understand people’s individual financial behavior. To be truly inclusive, we must design solutions that reflect a deeper understanding of a customer’s needs – without which even the most innovative and thoughtfully developed products will fail.
