In addition to the standard LinkedIn Groups features, the Connect: Professional Women’s Network Powered by Citi will have specially edited content and moderated discussions. LinkedIn editors also will produce a LinkedIn Today Special Edition designed for its members that will include both trending news from publishers and selected content from Citi.
Citi already has a robust marketing program targeting women that includes the ten-year-old Women & Co. content site, as well as newsletters, an email marketing database and a social media presence – including a company page on LinkedIn itself.
