  • Global Pay Equity at Citi

    By Sara Wechter, Head of Human Resources January 16, 2019 09:00 AM

    Citi’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is longstanding. Last year, Citi was the first financial institution to publicly release the results of a pay equity review comparing compensation of women to men, and U.S. minorities to U.S. non-minorities. Our review was conducted in three countries representing 36% of our workforce, with a commitment to do the work across all countries where we currently have colleagues. We did this because we believe increasing our transparency in this critical area is the best way to hold ourselves accountable for making progress.

  • Don’t Call Me Inspirational

    By Mark Carawan, Chief Compliance Officer, Citi November 20, 2018 02:30 PM

    I’ve never thought of myself as being inspiring or heroic for simply living my life. I certainly wouldn’t want others to think about or refer to me that way, either. A little self-reflection goes a long way, and really gets to the crux of the issue.
