  • Each of These Cities Wants to Grow Its Local Network of Entrepreneurs

    By Matt Baer, Senior Associate for Public Sector Innovation at Living Cities and Rodrick Miller, President & CEO of Ascendant Global June 19, 2018 04:00 PM

    Americans love entrepreneurs.

    Politicians of both parties routinely call small businesses “the backbone of our economy.” Plenty of well-known books and movies profile owners of both real-life and fictional companies; on popular TV shows like "Shark Tank," aspiring entrepreneurs compete for money from successful investors. Countless podcasts, master classes and inspirational online talks have been devoted to small businesses and the self-starters who run them.

  • Citi Continues Partnership with Girl Rising, A Global Campaign Using Storytelling to Educate and Empower Girls

    By Christina Lowery, CEO, Girl Rising April 06, 2018 11:00 AM

    Girl Rising is a non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment of girls and women around the world. Our movement began in 2013 with the release of the “Girl Rising” film, which tells the stories of nine girls growing up in the developing world, and how they confront barriers to their education. This film, highlighting personal perseverance and potential, remains at the heart of the global campaign to change how girls and girls’ education are valued.

    Though much of our work is still conducted overseas, we also saw a unique opportunity in the United States to support and champion girls’ education. Too many young people graduate without an understanding of social justice, global awareness and civic engagement and we found that teachers were desperate to tackle these issues with their students. As a result, we launched the Girl Rising U.S. Educator program on the heels of the film’s release and our partnership with Citi has allowed us to take this program to the next level.
