  • Honoring and Remembering our Fallen Service Members

    By Ed Skyler, Executive Vice President for Global Public Affairs, Citi May 24, 2019 09:15 AM

    As a Co-Lead of the Citi Salutes Affinity, I often speak to veterans and current service members about their military experience and what it’s like to navigate the transition to civilian life. The importance of those conversations goes well beyond helping to inform our initiatives in support of the military community, both within and outside of Citi. For me, their value lies in the light they shed on issues that may not be well understood or that civilians have never experienced in their own lives. That’s why I recently decided to reach out to some members of our Citi Salutes network to get their personal takes on Memorial Day and what it means to them.

    Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is recognized annually on the third Thursday of May. For all of us, it’s an opportunity to celebrate how technology is becoming more usable and accessible for people with disabilities. Thanks in part to GAAD, now in its eighth year, awareness of the importance of digital accessibility is increasing, and the people and institutions that develop and influence technology are becoming more responsive to this need.

  • 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.

  • A Moment To Appreciate Those Who Serve

    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. We want to take this opportunity to express gratitude to all of those who have served and sacrificed to help protect our freedoms.
