Citi Diversity Networks
At Citi Handlowy, we strongly believe that we are all equal.
Diversity are inclusion are key elements of our philosophy and corporate culture. We want the best people to work with us and we want to provide them with the possibility of full professional development respecting their dignity, regardless of sex, origin, religion or sexual orientation.
We see our strength in diversity. Today, the bank has 5 employee networks whose goal is to make Citi the best possible place to work for all of us.
Citi Pride Network

The network was distinguished for its activities with awards, such as the EMEA Live Our Values Awards in the Diversity & Inclusion category and the LGBT + Diamonds Polish Business Award for the best employee network.
Citi Women Network
The CitiWomen initiative has been operating at the Bank since 2004. The mission of the network is to create favorable conditions for the professional development of women, help overcome barriers and ensure the possibility of fulfilling their ambitions, while maintaining a balance between work and private life. The network creates a forum to inspire its members, share professional knowledge, best practices in Citi, develop soft skills, build a network of contacts and promote teamwork, regardless of gender.

Citi Disability Network
Citi DisAbility Network is a space open to any form of disability - for employees, their relatives, and customers. As part of the network, its members present the situation of people with disabilities - inside and outside the organization. It is a space to talk about what we can learn and how we can inspire each other, and share our experiences - we can make our imperfections our inner strength. The network builds awareness, breaks stereotypes, and initiates conversations on taboo topics. Network organizes meetings, workshops and trainings, promotes healthy lifestyle and regular examinations, organizes mental health trainings for all employees and supports Citi in being an inclusive employer.
Citi Multicultural Network
The mission of the multicultural network is to create equal opportunities for all employees, regardless of race or origin. The main goal is to take advantage of the multicultural diversity that we have and increase employee satisfaction. The network organizes meetings with managers from various industries and environments as part of the mentoring program, connects its members through various events, and helps to get to know different cultures and environments. It is a platform where employees from outside Poland can submit their questions, and everyone has a chance to help, share experiences and ideas.
Families Matter (Citi Parents Network)
Families Matter is an employee network about family and for family. Watching how many of us experience both the joy and challenges of maintaining a work-life balance - as parents, children, grandparents, caregivers of relatives - network members support employees in all aspects of life, primarily by creating a culture that ensures harmony between professional and family life. Families Matter has been operating since 2019 and deals with supporting working parents, sharing knowledge and organizing events for parents and children, including organizing development workshops to support each other in coping with family challenges.
