Read our 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility Year in Review. It provides a recap of our Corporate Citizenship efforts as well as a more comprehensive overview of our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging programs, our Sustainability metrics, and our Supplier Diversity initiatives.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, our employees continued to raise the bar of community stewardship by supporting our global communities and those most in need. They maintained connections with each other through giving, volunteering, and advancing our diversity and sustainability initiatives. To support employees facing hardships, we established the Citrix Employee Relief Fund that offers financial assistance to global Citrites experiencing personal emergencies or disasters. Citrix contributes to this fund and matches employee donations to the fund. Our employees are leading with our values to create meaningful change around the world.
We are inclusive, embrace empathy, and deeply value our differences
We are accountable, honest, and ethical
We are aspirational, continuously learn, and innovate
We dream big, share our voices, and take calculated risks
We trust each other, collaborate, and win together
We strive to support our global communities through our people, our partners, and our technology. Our strategic focus supports three main themes: Education, Equity, and the Environment. Our efforts are aimed at ensuring inclusivity and equitable quality education for all. We are committed to empowering marginalized communities with access to technology to narrow the digital divide. Our environmental efforts redefine how the future of work offers sustainability opportunities for the planet, our business, and our society.

Citrix India has been collaborating with the India Rising Trust for the #CleanStreetsCampaign in Bangalore since 2016. The impact of the work done by hundreds of Citrix volunteers over the past six years is clearly visible over 3 square miles in the heart of Bengaluru. The focus was on a singular mission - a clean, hygienic urban environment in a clearly defined zone, and over a sustained period. This affects thousands of citizens daily and has had a positive impact on the city’s public health and self-image.

SOCARE IND has taken care of more than 150 children at different times. We are privileged to be the beneficiary of the CSR initiative of Citrix for close to a decade. Our thanks and appreciation to Citrix for their generosity.
It is wonderful to collaborate with such a sensitive and understanding funder like Citrix. The volunteers transformed the drab looking government school with the simple act of paint and hard work.

With your support we were able to provide Indian athletes with world class coaching, state-of-the art equipment, nutrition, physiotherapy, physiotherapy, injury rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, etc., which enables them to train at the highest levels.
