Regional Diversity & Inclusion Councils
Our Regional Diversity and Inclusion Councils are made up of representatives from all lines of business situated across 32 geographic locations. From a retail branch teller to a regional president, all council members have a voice. These councils work to generate revenue by attracting new customers, partnering with diverse suppliers, hiring diverse employees who reflect their respective markets and strengthening their relationships with communities.
Intentionally taking the extra steps to build new connections for our teams, our communities and our clients is what differentiates us as an organization.
A market liaison leads each Regional Diversity and Inclusion Council and works with subcommittees to analyze market data, identify opportunities, and create and execute a market strategy.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is one of the critical components to 2016 being a new record for PNC’s performance in the Chicago region.
The diversity and inclusion team advises and guides these councils and provides the necessary support, data, analytics, tools and resources.

2016 Council Highlights
The Cincinnati Regional Diversity and Inclusion Council launched a Speaker Series in 2016. The Speaker Series invited community leaders to address diversity and inclusion topics relevant to the market. Highlights of the series included a visit to the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati. In addition to dispelling myths about the Muslim faith, the guest speaker provided a tour of the center and shared tips for doing business with the Muslim community. The second speaker was a civil rights jurist who gave a historical perspective of the long fight for equality and challenged the employees in attendance to join the effort to improve race relations.
The Speaker Series allows us to discuss relevant issues and topics in a supportive and productive environment. It fosters conversations between our team members so that we gain new perspectives and knowledge, and offers us new ways to connect to the communities we serve.
The Toledo Diversity and Inclusion Council expanded its business with a host of credit unions, which serve diverse segments in their region.
Our council had a unique opportunity to serve our community by building relationships with the management and board members of local credit unions, and assist their members and low-income communities with products and services that are not normally offered.
The PNC Military EBRG, along with the Pittsburgh Regional D&I Council and several community partners, collaborated on an inaugural dog walk – called the Mutt Strut – as a fundraiser to sponsor service dogs for Pittsburgh-area veterans through Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. The event included a large dog parade with prizes for various categories.

There were more than 400 registrants, 24 sponsors, 15 vendors and 75 PNC employees who volunteered, and the EBRG met its ambitious goal of funding nine service dogs at a cost of $22,000 each.
I’m so proud to be part of the military community here at PNC. In my day job, as a veteran and as a member of a couple of boards for veteran-focused organizations, I’m honored I can say that my company gets it.
