In 2016, almost 300 PNC employees became PNC-Certified Women’s Business Advocates. This certification, in place for more than five years, has enabled employees to stand out in the communities they serve.
The newly certified employees joined the already established 1,500 PNC-Certified Women’s Business Advocates (WBAs) who work to meet the financial needs and well-being of female financial decision-makers as a result of the insights gained through the certification program.
Women who own businesses, women who make financial decisions for their families, women who run the financial operations for Fortune 500 companies, and women who are investing in a richer future for themselves all benefit from having a financial advocate who understands them. Understanding just how many women are in control of financial decision-making — and how to help them succeed — is a key outcome of PNC’s certification program.
With this training and certification, I will be able to better relate and communicate with them to earn their trust and, ultimately, their business portfolio.
I am committed to making more women feel at ease in business environments and believe this certification will aid me in doing so.
Having learned that privately held companies owned by women are the fastest-growing U.S. business segment, many WBAs have established networking groups for female owners and joined the leadership of organizations that provide entrepreneurial mentoring. PNC’s sponsorships of organizations like the Women Presidents’ Organization and The Committee of 200 are championed by WBAs who are passionate about contributing to the success of these groups and their members. WBAs also celebrate the accomplishments of female customers by nominating their stories for Women Who Achieve.
