Women & Co., a division of Citi, is the premier online financial resource for women seeking financial empowerment.

The centerpiece of the campaign is the inspiring and personal financial stories of real women – members of Women & Co. It presents the unique financial goals and experiences of each woman in a cohesive and engaging narrative. The members are artfully photographed in group portraits, displaying the range in age and ethnicity of this diverse community of intellectually and financially curious women.

"Women are increasingly using their growing economic power to benefit their families, businesses, communities and the world," said Kristi Faulkner President, Womenkind.  

"Women live longer, spend more years in retirement, and are more likely to interrupt their careers to tend to families, which has a tremendous impact on the financial decisions they make" said Sandy Sabean, Chief Creative Officer, Womenkind. "Through this campaign, we wanted to give women a voice, a face, and the recognition they deserve from the financial community."

The campaign will run through November 2010.
