This year, Citi Microfinance and the Citi Foundation partnered to drive a discussion on agricultural value chain finance through a panel titled "From Farm to Plate" (check out this blog post for one attendee's take). Citi Community Development was proud to support the 38th Annual Lunar New Year Banquet of its long-time community partner, Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE.) Citi Foundation has supported the work of AAFE's affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, a CDFI and technical assistance provider focused on low-income, minority and women-owned businesses in low-income immigrant neighborhoods.

For employers, moving to direct deposit and paperless pay can lower payroll processing costs by up to 90 percent, and eliminates the headache of lost and stolen checks. CurrenC SF is an extension of the City's pioneering program Bank on San Francisco, which has provided over 72,000 bank accounts to low-income San Franciscans and spread to more than 100 cities across the country. More than 67,000 households in San Francisco are paid with paper checks, including 68 percent of low-income workers.
Several CurrenC SF Employer Champions including Recology, Blue Shield of California, William Watlington Foods, Walgreens, Rickshaw Bagworks, Bi-Rite Market and Goodwill Industries were recognized for their leadership in financial empowerment efforts and participated in the launch. The CurrenC SF website provides resources to help employers initiate or expand direct deposit in their organizations.
As Black History Month draws to a close, I am mindful of how fortunate I am to work for two organizations that are strongly committed to the twin, complementary goals of diversity and empowerment. Similarly, New York City Mission Society, for which I am Chair of the Board of Directors, promotes the positive development of underserved young people and families in order to strengthen communities and, as a consequence, our city's diversity. As it turns out, both Citi and New York City Mission Society are celebrating 200 years of service in 2012.
Citi's commitment to diversity spans the organization a€” particularly through the activities of Citi's Employee Networks a€” and the calendar, with events and activities highlighting the months that have been formally designated to celebrate the culture, history and contributions of various communities. Across the country, Citi's African Heritage Networks (AHN) provide a wide range of educational, cultural and fellowship-building opportunities during African American History Month. Ellen Stafford, who has been with Citi in Irving, Texas for a little over four years, got involved with the Dallas-Fort Worth AHN as Communications Chair this year. As Executive Recruiter for North America, Ellen is very aware that Citi provides an even playing field on which qualified applicants, both within and outside Citi, can compete.
Ellen is shifting her recruiting focus from IT to sustaining Citi's overall culture of diversity. More broadly, Ellen would like to see an increase in positive, healthy messages in popular culture, particularly for children, and a continued and strong policy focus on education. Annette Griffin of Baltimore agrees about the importance of education and how helpful it can be to have a mentor, as she did.
Annette is a Senior HR Generalist and supports employees in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
In Columbus, Ohio, Jenine Johnson of Securities Processing notes that Citi has had a major impact on diversity in her metropolitan area, thanks in particular to the leadership of the Columbus Office Director Mark Bjorstrom.
Jenine has taken an active role herself in expanding diversity, including introducing Citi's African Heritage Network in Columbus.
Jenine strongly values African American History Month and all the diversity months that Citi celebrates. Willie Henry Jr., of Citi's Graduate Recruitment Team in Jacksonville, Florida, is co-chair of the AHN there.
Willie draws inspiration from football legend Jerry Rice a€” "who showed that, with the right tools and hard work, you can compete with anyone even without traditional stamps of status" a€” and from his own brother-in-law, who moved up the ranks at one of the country's largest retailers. On July 17, 2009, a national consortium of non-profit affordable housing developers submitted an application to the U.S. CPLC has organized this coalition in partnership with National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders (NALCAB).

Citi has partnered with United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona to transform and expand a successful, six-year financial education program called Citi Youth into a dynamic and holistic family financial capability center, called the Prosperity Center. Imagine teaching a young person about how to find available college scholarships and then helping his parents complete the standard financial education application form. With the Prosperity Center, Citi has partnered with United Way (UW) of Tucson and Southern Arizona to transform and expand a successful, six-year financial education program called Citi Youth into a dynamic and holistic family financial capability center.
The Prosperity Center offers financial education classes from 3-6pm, when students typically participate in after-school programs, and will remain open until at least 7pm so that adults (including those who don't have children at the host school) also can participate in workshops and avail themselves of the Center's other asset-building services.

In 2009, the Citi Foundation provided a grant to Cal State University Northridge (CSUN) Student Outreach and Recruitment Services to support its College Can Happen Initiative (CCHI), a strategic and comprehensive program to improve enrollment at the university. CCHI provides information and encouragement to middle and high school students and their parents, in low to moderate-income (LMI) communities in San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles, to help them prepare for entrance into a four-year college. Many of the students reached by CCHI would be first-generation college students, and the program aims to foster a college-going culture. As part of the CCHI program, Citi volunteers have taught financial education workshops at CSUN on how to manage finances on a student budget, credit, savings and investing. Citi is working with Self-Help to expand financial inclusion for thousands of Californians. A supportive and welcoming environment, achieved through staff preparation and branch design.

To enable replication of the Micro Branch model, the CCD grant also supports analysis of the operating model and customer outcomes. Jose came regularly to the Micro Branch, every Friday, to cash his check and send money to his family.

In addition to transforming my fears and behaviors, Deborah has understood and contributed greatly to resolutions of my complicated business issues due to her competence in business and financial matters related to business structures, investments, trusts, and taxes. Her technical money knowledge from her professional background, together with her psychological and emotional understanding of human behavior, create a rare and powerful combination for amazing resolutions of difficulties related to money and many of life’s issues. The framework of the money coaching method that Deborah Price has developed can lead to insight and wisdom around one's relationship with money, and more. Deborah has demonstrated pathways to successfully transform one's relationship with money for the better. Both the archetypes and the work have helped me as a coach and have become a useful part of my own life too. I am forever grateful for my life-changing learning with, and practice under, Deborah's generous, spirited, disciplined mentoring.
Working with Deborah and becoming a Money Coach has improved my life personally as well as my work serving solopreneurs and nonprofit entrepreneurs. Becoming a Certified Money Coach under Deborah's brilliant, systematic training was the best choice I've ever made.
Her coaching also had a profound effect on my relationship, which went through some pretty rocky times in part due to shadow money issues.
Deborah coached my husband and I when we were experiencing the painful impact of our collective money challenges, two years into our otherwise blissful marriage. I decided to do a money coaching workshop with Deborah after a group consultation she gave to our non-profit organization. The steps to getting what you want in your life involve two primary elements; achieving absolute clarity as to where you stand today, then understanding the path ahead of you and the potential roadblocks that may hinder it.
