Employees in our Community
Citi employees have always been actively involved in the community and Citi facilitates this through its well-established volunteering and workplace giving programs.
Citi employees volunteer year-round, and the establishment of Global Community Day in 2006 has provided an annual opportunity for tens of thousands of Citi employees, along with their families and friends, to come together as a global volunteer team to use their time, skills, and expertise to make a difference in their cities. Global Community Day is one of the many ways Citi shows its commitment to the communities where we have a presence.
In addition to Global Community Day, Citi offers employees one day of paid volunteer leave to support a charity they are passionate about or participate in a volunteer program with a Citi Foundation grant recipient.
Pathways to Progress aims to help reduce youth unemployment in key cities around the world and improve the quality of the youth workforce through partnerships with non profit organisations.
In February 2017, the Citi Foundation announced its largest philanthropic commitment ever with the global expansion of Pathways to Progress. By 2020 Citi will invest an additional US$100 million to impact the lives of 500,000 youth (ages 16-24) globally. Citi will also engage at least 10,000 employees as volunteers.
Over the last two years, the Citi Foundation has awarded more than A$3 million to support a range of partners in Australia including;
- Brotherhood of St Laurence
- Foundation for Young Australians
- Global Sisters
- Skilling Australia Foundation
- Social Ventures Australia
- The Smith Family

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’ educations are valued.
