    By Julie Scammahorn, Chief Auditor of Citibank, N.A., Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering; U.S. Marine Corps Veteran and Ed Skyler, Head of Global Public Affairs November 01, 2018 01:00 PM

    On November 11, the United States observes Veterans Day to celebrate all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, and the United Kingdom observes Remembrance Day to honor those who sacrificed themselves in the line of duty. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, making this year’s observance particularly significant.

  • Tackling Youth Violence in London

    By Rachel Barber, Head of Community Development, EMEA October 17, 2018 10:30 AM
