Citi celebrated International Women's Day (IWD), a UN-designated occasion falling on March 8th each year, through a series of events held at its premises or with local community partners around the world.
Across the Middle East, Citi held several events which featured Citi's female clients as well as employees.
Citibank N.A. Kuwait honored exceptional famous women by sharing their stories and quotes on a daily basis since the beginning of the week.
Danah Razooqi, one of the female employees, completed 5 years with Citibank Kuwait on the 8th of March. She was presented with an award and certificate to congratulate her on completing five years and to thank her for her commitment and dedication to Citi.
During a staff get together, Ozgur Kutay General Manager for Citibank NA Kuwait thanked the female employees for their local community work, efforts and active participation in the charity events every year.
The bank also took the female employees to a unique pampering session to one of the boutique salons in Kuwait for a refreshing experience.
This and other events are a continuation of 2012 celebrations when Citi held more than 100 events in 88 cities across 57 countries to mark the day, while 2013 celebrations covered over 185 events across 124 cities and 85 countries.
They also complement Citi Foundation efforts aimed at empowering women in the communities where we live and work through focused programmes run with local and regional NGOs, including:
"IWD is an occasion for Citi to reiterate its commitment to developing and advancing our female employees in addition to supporting clients and communities with the aim of bridging gender gaps," said Ozgur Kutay, General Manager for Citibank N.A. Kuwait.
"Moreover, we work closely with community partners throughout the region to support women's causes, an effort which falls within our stated objective as a global corporate citizen," he added.
Citi has been in the Arab world for nearly 50 years and continues to view the region as critical to its global franchise. It is currently present in ten Arab countries including Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.
