Q&A with Marsha Jones, PNC Financial Services Chief Diversity Officer
Q: What are the greatest challenges facing corporate diversity and inclusion? How do you and your team plan to address these challenges and seize these opportunities at PNC?
A: Historically, corporate diversity and inclusion programs have been areas that were significantly impacted by the economy. When the market performed well, diversity programs and initiatives were well-funded. During difficult times, however, these programs were often the first to be cut. At PNC, diversity has been one of our core values for decades. We believe that we’re at a point now, however, where diversity and inclusion is a critical business asset for the organization, in addition to being a foundational component for a strong corporate culture.
