Citi celebrated its annual Global Community Day recently, with more than 100 Citi volunteers in Dhaka and Chittagong engaged in activities in their local communities.
In the days leading up to and including Global Community Day, tens of thousands of Citi colleagues, alumni, clients, family and friends in more than 450 cities across 90 countries and territories volunteered across 1,400 service projects that helped address a range of community needs, from feeding the hungry to revitalizing schools for a better learning environment for preparing young people for jobs.
On Global Community Day, Citi volunteers invest their time and efforts alongside community and non-profit partners on service opportunities that help create thriving neighborhoods.
"Global Community Day is now a long-running tradition that gives Citi colleagues all around the world an opportunity to further demonstrate our values to the communities we serve," said Citi CEO Michael Corbat in a statement on Wednesday.
"While our presence as a firm may be global, the real impact on this day is local, and one example of how we're enabling progress in a big way."
On the occasion of Global Community Day, N Rajashekaran, Managing Director and Citi Country Officer- Bangladesh, said, "This provides us an opportunity to make a difference in the community where we live and work, which is core to our mission."
