Diversity & Inclusion in the Marketplace

Supporting Our Marketplace

Building Bridges with our Customers & Communities

By deepening relationships with our diverse customers and markets, we identify and navigate new marketplace opportunities and improve the customer experience.

D&I Regional Councils

Our regional councils are made up of representatives from all lines of business and are situated across markets within PNC’s footprint. Council members work to develop and implement market-based D&I strategies, including expanding business opportunities, partnering with diverse suppliers, recruiting top talent reflective of market representation, and strengthening relationships with customers and within our communities.
