  • How the Military Prepared Me for the Private Sector

    By Micah Heavener, Managing Director, Global Consumer Bank, Citi & Prior Captain, U.S. Army November 11, 2016 10:00 AM

    I am one of America’s 21.2 million veterans. I spent the early 2000s as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army. Part of that time included a year in Afghanistan split between Kandahar and Zabul provinces where I served as a liaison to the United Nations and later with my infantry unit. At the end of my rotation, I faced one of the toughest decisions: what’s next?

    Like most veterans, as I was making this transition to civilian life, the last thing I wanted was pity. I wanted to continue to contribute, to be part of a team, and help an organization succeed. I knew I could produce if given the opportunity, but I was not sure how my skills and experiences translated into the private sector.

    Luckily for me, I joined a company that actively pursues veterans, and offers programs designed to help them start a career and assimilate into the workforce. Citi’s commitment to veterans did more than offer me the chance to contribute – it was a clear signal the company valued what I had to offer and they were willing to invest in me.

  • Citi Leaders Named to the 2016 OUTstanding/Financial Times Leading LGBT & Ally Executives Lists

    By Terry Hogan, Global Head of Diversity and Director, Talent Management, Citi October 26, 2016 09:45 AM

    I am delighted to share the news that again this year, two of our senior executives appear in the 2016 OUTstanding/Financial Times Leading LGBT & Ally Executives lists. Citi’s Jim Cowles, CEO of Europe, Middle East and Africa and Bob Annibale, Global Director for Citi Inclusive Finance & Community Development, have been named by OUTstanding/FT for their demonstration of Citi’s commitment to the LGBT community, and for working tirelessly inside and outside the bank to achieve positive change for LGBT people.

    OUTstanding, which was founded in 2013 to demonstrate that “LGBT+ executives could be visible, safe and successful in business”, publishes these lists each year to support the ideal that LGBT+ employees will not be held back or live in fear of discrimination because of who they are.

  • Empowering Local NGOs in Brazil to Take Ownership of Their Progress

    By Sami Elia, Planning Analyst, Citi Commercial Bank, Brazil July 28, 2016 10:30 AM

    Citi supports many community giving programs in Brazil, but one that is truly unique is CitiEsperança, an organization established and now managed by Citi Brazil colleagues in 1997 in Rio de Janeiro to give back to the communities where they live and work. Supported by employee and company matching donations, the association has grown to close to 1,000 participants, including Citi colleagues and other donors.

    As someone with a lifelong interest in social issues and a passion for giving back to our communities shared by many of my Citi colleagues, I became a volunteer at CitiEsperança in 2013. It’s been incredibly stimulating work and an immensely gratifying program to take part in. In addition to solidifying the organization’s vision and creating a more formal governance structure, one of the projects I’m most personally proud of has been the development of Rede de Amigos do CitiEsperança, a network of Citi volunteers, partners and NGOs that meets bimonthly to share experiences and best practices in an effort help participating organizations learn from each other while strengthening the nonprofit sector more broadly.
