Rashmi has helped to make Citi more welcoming and inclusive for BAME people in a number of ways, including developing a BAME-focused Mentorship program; promoting inclusion through events and programs, bringing a specific BAME focus to Citi’s internally recognized and popular ‘Inspire and Lead’ speaker series; acting as a role model to prove that women from a non-traditional background like Rashmi can succeed in a client facing corporate and investment banking environment; and celebrating diversity as Co Chair of Citi Roots, where she organises the firm’s celebration of major cultural events. Externally, Rashmi is a member of the House of Lords Multicultural Professional Network Forum, sharing best practice on BAME diversity and inclusion. She also structures and delivers business skills workshops for students from various academies and local schools in London who represent the BAME community, aiming to inspire, educate and support students who would be less likely to consider a career in banking and who would not normally have an opportunity to get direct access to a global employer like Citi. Rashmi championed an initiative that engaged the broader workforce in helping the BAME community in local communities by organising a community volunteering day at the Hope Family Trust.
