PNC’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace goes beyond race, age, sexual orientation and other demographic identifiers to include diversity of thought and experience. By intentionally working to build the best and most diverse teams, we foster more creative problem-solving and more innovation, which help us better serve our customers and the communities where we do business.

Diversity is an outcome of bringing together the best talent in the business, not a goal in and of itself. Over the years, we have embraced and promoted diversity as a core value because it is the right thing to do. And we continue to connect diversity and inclusion to every aspect of our business. The result? Marketplace wins and stronger relationships with our diverse customers, suppliers and community partners.

Embracing diversity at PNC also means welcoming and celebrating our employees’ different backgrounds, cultures and ideas. These differences invite constructive dialogue about the best ways to deliver superior results for all our stakeholders. They make our conversations richer and the business solutions more robust. And our managers play a vital role in cultivating this culture of inclusion. They are accountable for leading and developing teams whose diverse skills and knowledge give PNC a competitive advantage.

Diversity is more than just a good idea. In our ever-changing business environment, diversity is essential. And we know from experience that a commitment to diversity brings success — for our employees in their respective careers, and for PNC as a whole.
