INTERVIEW: Asia a vital contributor to Citigroup’s growth: CEO

Citigroup chief executive officer Michael Corbat shared his insights into meeting the company’s goal for 2020 and Taiwan’s role in the endeavor in an e-mail interview yesterday with ‘Taipei Times’ staff reporter Ted Chen

At the same time, our customers are also more engaged than ever before and have clear expectations of their business partners. I’ve been pleased and encouraged by these shifts and look forward to continuing the dialogue and engagement within our firm and with our clients and partners.

One area I would like to continue to highlight is our commitment to being an inclusive company and one where our colleagues can bring their true, full selves to work each and every day. However, as more than 50 percent of our colleagues globally are female, we recognize there is still work to be done to grow senior-level female representation. We were the first in the industry to disclose the results of our gender pay analysis and our plans to address the small discrepancies that were uncovered. We have recently announced global representation goals for female colleagues. These goals—which represent a starting point, not an end state—will help us continue to drive progress as a firm. We look to our franchise in Taiwan as a great example of diversity at Citi. Over 70 percent of our employees here in Taiwan are female and the management team is over 50 percent female.
