    Last week, Citi announced the launch of a $150 million Impact Fund that will make equity investments in businesses that are making a social impact, with a focus on women and minority business owners. This announcement coincides with the release of their annual pay transparency report, which showed a 2% improvement in closing the raw pay gap for Citi employees. Citi was the first major financial institution to go public with their pay equity numbers in 2018, as well as commit to full pay transparency for both gender and race. 

    Citi’s work in pay transparency is a pacesetting move within an industry has the largest pay gap when compared to other major commercial sectors. In a blog post by Sara Wechter, Head of Human Resources, the global banking corporation detailed their continuing commitment to creating equal pay. “As we’ve said before, transparency breeds accountability and we took that important first step last year in disclosing our pay equity results. We know the...

  • Knowing the strengths and areas for improvement of nonprofit organizations can help you better support them. Karen Kardos, Head of Philanthropic Advisory at #Citi Private Bank, shares how research can help bring your philanthropic mission to life: Link https://t.co/NjsbspnX69
    Citi Wed 22 Jan 2020 17:25

    When it comes to philanthropy, we are often asked “How do I create impact?” or we hear mantras such as “I want to make sure my dollars count!” The best way forward starts with doing your homework.

    Effective and efficient research is critical; not only to understand the landscape and any relevant issues, but also to learn about the nonprofits you and your family may choose to support.

    Understanding the landscape of the cause or initiative your family wants to support can begin with online research. This helps family members develop a better understanding and education about the cause, the associated issues, needs, funding gaps, opportunities, and nonprofit organizations working in that space.

    Contacting local community groups, the local chamber of commerce, or other local institutions (e.g. research facilities, hospitals, universities, local governments, etc.) can also yield helpful information. Meeting with nonprofits already working on a particular...

    Latest Menino Survey of Mayors from Boston University Initiative on Cities, supported by Citi Community Development and The Rockefeller Foundation, also Addresses Opportunity Zones, Climate Change, and the Future of Work

    According to Boston University Initiative on Cities’ 2019 Menino Survey of Mayors – the only national representative survey of American mayors – city executives believe our nation’s crumbling infrastructure is the most important issue presidential candidates should be talking about on the campaign trail. In an open-ended question, 45 percent of mayors said infrastructure was the issue related to cities they hoped was discussed during the election, a response with so much consensus that the next top answer was housing affordability with only 15 percent.

    Perhaps signaling growing concerns about the impacts of climate change on their cities, 25 percent of mayors cited water, wastewater, and stormwater projects, more than any other type of...

    Back in the 1980s in the U.S., the term ‘Yuppie’ was coined to describe the new ‘young urban professionals’ who had taken over meetings rooms and restaurants. To make sure you were following the trend on point there was even a ‘Yuppie Handbook’ that gave detailed instructions on the necessary gear to be considered part of the club — a designer watch, a pin-striped suit, as well as a certain brand of overcoat and briefcase and a sports car. The mid-1980s were all about showing off your status by having the most expensive stuff. The era came to a quick halt with the stock market crash of 1987.
