• Progress Driven By Diversity – Citi and UN Women

    By Yolande Piazza, CEO of Citi FinTech September 28, 2017 09:00 AM

    ​As the head of Citi FinTech, I’m often asked about the role of women in leadership and innovation. My answer is often the same, which is that when I arrive at our office every day, I’m surrounded and inspired by a diverse team of change-makers. Our team members come from 5 continents and backgrounds that span the range of banking and technology companies. Half of my leadership team are women and half of Citi FinTech’s workforce are millennials. I’m proud of our diversity, not just because the statistics demonstrate the authenticity of our commitment, but also because of the impact these individuals have had collectively on the way we work and the results we deliver. The blend of experiences and inclusive culture have been critical to our success and make me proud to work at Citi.

    September 11, 2017 04:45 PM

    Ben is a college student in Oakland, California who has been interested in music and photography his entire life. Ben wanted to make a career for himself in the arts but wasn’t sure where to begin, as he lacked the technical and professional skills to turn his passion into a career. In high school he discovered Youth Radio, an organization that offers young people intensive training in media and technology and then engages them in work-based learning opportunities. Ben is currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree and is also now working at Youth Radio working as a project associate teaching 9th graders everything that was taught to him in the program.
