Weeklong Lineup of Virtual Events Features Women Leaders and Gamechangers
Submitted by The PNC Financial Services Group
PITTSBURGH, Pa., April 28, 2023 /CSRwire/ - PNC Bank is proud to announce its 13th annual Women in Business Week, a collection of in-person meetings, events and virtual webinars May 8-12, featuring women who are leading the way and changing the game in their industries. The annual event – a focal point in PNC's year-round commitment to women – is intended to provide women financial decision-makers with insights applicable to the many financial roles they may play, from business owners and household "CFOs" to corporate executives.
Virtual programs complement dozens of in-person events hosted by PNC Bank regional presidents coast to coast, with this year's lineup featuring engaging and informative speakers, including Wendy Yuengling Baker, chief administrative officer of America's oldest brewery; Alison Levine, Mount Everest expedition captain; Julie Uhrman, co-founder and president, Angel City FC; and more.
"This year's Women in Business Week events were inspired by the women gamechangers who continue to leave a lasting impact on industries such as sports, education, outdoor adventure and more," says Beth Marcello, head of PNC's Women's Business Development. "Our Women in Business Week speakers will offer their motivating experiences and insights on a variety of topics relevant to financial decision-makers today through a number of lenses, from the game of women's soccer to educating children about money management."
Women in Business Week is just one example of PNC's commitment to continually engage, enlighten, attract and retain women financial decision-makers as clients and employees. The bank has supported women financial decision-makers for more than 20 years, and its Women's Business Development practice was officially established in 2000 to reflect its recognition of the increasing impact of women as decision-makers and influencers. In 2021, PNC established Project 257®: Accelerating Women's Financial Equality to help close the 257-year economic gender gap identified by the World Economic Forum's 2020 Global Gender Gap Report.
On the frontlines of PNC's Women's Business Development work is a national network of more than 4,800 PNC-Certified Women's Business Advocates, men and women specially trained as allies who women can rely on and trust as they navigate life's financial challenges and opportunities. PNC also supports numerous organizations, such as Coralus (formerly SheEO), which mentor and advocate for women.
Through these efforts and its national main street bank approach, PNC Bank strives to bring women together through interesting and informative programming throughout its regional market footprint and by focusing on financial wellness and empowerment for customers and non-customers alike.
