New York – Citi announced it has signed on to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion (CEO Action), joining more than 350 CEOs and presidents committed to driving policy changes and practices in their companies that help advance equitable workplaces. This move demonstrates Citi's commitment to increasing diversity and encouraging an open environment that enables employees to thrive and deliver the best possible results for their clients and communities.
"At the end of the day, what matters most to the leaders of this company is that all employees who come to work at Citi from different backgrounds, thoughts, experiences and perspectives can feel good and proud about our differences and our diversity," said Citi CEO Michael Corbat. "CEO Action is one way Citi and our peers are increasing transparency around diversity issues and keeping ourselves accountable."
CEO Action launched in 2017 and brings together top leaders from America's businesses, academic institutions and nonprofits, to share best practices and discuss progress on key steps included in the commitment. Citi is already taking steps outlined in the CEO Action to further diversity and inclusion, including setting representation targets; fostering open dialogue around crucial and often-sensitive issues; and providing unconscious bias in the workplace training for senior executives and soon the wider Citi employee population.
Citi, the leading global bank, has approximately 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions. Citi provides consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, transaction services, and wealth management.
