Employees throughout PNC who participate in our employee business resource groups (EBRGs) have access to a mentoring program that provides professional and personal development and support. The program has had a significant impact on our employees' growth, development and engagement by helping them navigate the organization, learn from the experiences of others and connect with leadership.
PNC has been recognized by Disability:IN® as the 2019 Employer of the Year for its "exemplary policies, strategies and initiatives that have resulted in measurable progress in the areas of disability inclusiveness in the workplace, marketplace and supply chain."
"As part of PNC’s Talent-Focused Culture, our approach to accessibility touches every part of our business," said Vicki Henn, chief human resources officer. "We have doubled down on our efforts, with a company-wide strategy focused on hiring people with disabilities, safe and inclusive customer and employee experiences, enhanced accommodations processes and barrier-free technology."
Disability:IN, formerly known as the U.S. Business Leadership Network, is the leading nonprofit resource for business disability inclusion worldwide. Partnering with more than 185 corporations, Disability:IN expands opportunities for people with disabilities across enterprises.
While accepting the award this week at Disability:IN’s annual conference, Vicki congratulated everyone at PNC whose hard work made the award possible. "While much work remains, we are proud of the progress we’re making and of this award, which reflects the dedication, passion and commitment of so many employees."
From senior leadership to the front line employees, we believe everyone at PNC can function more effectively as allies for women in the workplace. Our Men as Allies program, a high-priority initiative, represents our latest step toward advancing gender equity.
Men as Allies was designed to explore how men at PNC – from top leadership to the front lines – can more effectively operate as allies for women in the workplace, including recognizing and overcoming their own unconscious biases. The initiative directly aligns to PNC’s pursuit of a Talent-Focused Culture, our overall diversity and inclusion strategy and our Leadership Standards. The program equips male leaders to become strong allies and mentors, with the ultimate goal of creating a stronger, gender-inclusive mentoring workplace culture.
There is a business case for male mentorship: Research shows that strong mentorships are instrumental in the retention and promotion of women. Further, organizations that retain and promote top talent — across genders — are more likely to thrive.
PNC conceived Men as Allies in partnership with the Forté Foundation. The program underscores the importance of men advocating for women and all diverse employees, and reinforces our commitment to creating an inclusive organization that empowers, celebrates, connects and inspires women.
