Diversity in Citi

The Show Racism the Red Card website is sponsored by Citi employees at the IFSC. With upwards of 1500 employees from 20 different countries working for Citi in Dublin, the company takes great strides to ensure the right environment exists for its employees.The company contributes in terms of staff time and finance to a range of projects improving the community in the inner city. Staff are very active in the Junior Achiever scheme which offers mentoring to young people.In recognition of the diversity within the company, Citi hosts an annual Diversity Day on July 6th. This year Show Racism the Red Card were invited to give a presentation of our work to employees at the lunch time talk.We had the opportunity to give an overview of Show Racism the Red Card, its background and its future and also showed the DVD. We also invited Basketball Ireland to present their Summer Jam project for integration. Show Racism the Red Card has had a great relationship with Shamrock Rovers built up over the last year and by coincidence Citi employee and Shamrock Rovers director James Nolan presented the club’s work with Show Racism the Red Card.There was an interesting exchange of information with questions and contributions from staff. As a mark of the day, Brian Murphy (Human Resources and Vice Chair of the Diversity Council at Citi) presented a cheque for €2,000 in sponsorship of the Show Racism the Red Card website.
