PNC employees bring diversity and inclusion goals to life through EBRGs. EBRGs are unique groups composed mostly of employees who share a common dimension of diversity, such as gender, sexual orientation, heritage or military service, among others.
These groups welcome all PNC employees in an effort to share their backgrounds and experiences with one another. EBRGs offer participants opportunities to network, communicate, and progress personally and professionally. Members also work closely with senior executives to implement business opportunities they have identified and initiatives recommended by their groups.
The Asian-American EBRG is much more than just a fun sushi-rolling class or tea-tasting event. It provides PNC employees with a tangible perspective into various Asian cultures, which in turn, helps us to genuinely connect with each other, our clients and our diverse communities where we do business.
- Shinik Patel | President, Asian-American EBRG, Eastern Carolinas
The broader message to derive from events such as these is quite simply that diversity and inclusion is vital to every aspect of our organization’s success, whether as a resource to cultivate meaningful professional relationships within the organization, further employee engagement or leverage as a strategic sales tool. The measure of success involves PNC employees being intentional about consistently incorporating diversity and inclusion into their professional activities and individualized development plans.
