Celebrating Diversity

PNC’s History and Heritage Program celebrates the history, cultures and holidays of our diverse employees and customers

Our History and Heritage program celebrates the history, cultures and holidays of PNC’s diverse employees and customers. Through our participation in various activities and events, we learn about others’ traditions and backgrounds.

In 2016, more than 100 events were organized throughout the organization to celebrate History and Heritage Months.

Highlights of our various market events include:

FEBRUARY - Black History Month

PNC partnered with Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History to host a prescreening of the documentary, “Olympic Pride, American Prejudice.” The film tells the story of 13 African-American athletes who, along with Jesse Owens, competed in the Berlin games. The event included a reception and question-and-answer session with the film’s director and executive producer.
