Citi Bulgaria Joins Empower Her Initiative

On April 5th, 2023 Citibank Bulgaria joined the Empower Her Initiative. The declaration was signed by Stanislava Taneva, CCO Bulgaria and Banking Head for Central Europe committing Citi Bulgaria’s support for the initiative. On that date Citi Bulgaria hosted a dedicated session to the #EmpowerHer initiative which aims at promoting women’s economic empowerment and equality.

The people that attended the session were inspired by stories shared by Pamela Ward, Regional Senior Commercial Officer, Southeast Europe at the U.S. Department of Commerce and Empower Her co-leader and founder of Empower Her, Hannah Kamentesky, Commercial Advisor, U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria, Melissa Marszalek, Commercial Attaché , U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria, and Stephania Semova, Committee Lead, AmCham Bulgaria, provided an overview of the project’s first steps so far.

Participants discussed local DEI challenges and suggested wider sharing of best practices amongst AmCham members such as diversity numbers which can lead to more openness, transparency and positive change in terms of inclusion.
