How women business leaders power the economy and drive change

For the fourth consecutive year, PNC Bank is honored to partner with Smart Business to host the Perspectives: Women Who Excel conference in northern Ohio. We frequently hear from our female clients who own or run businesses that they appreciate opportunities to learn from other successful businesswomen. That’s one reason we continue to support forums like the Perspectives conference that provide a platform for women to share their knowledge and experience with other women, as well as men, in our business community.

Supporting the achievement of women entrepreneurs and executives is vital to the economic health of Northeast Ohio, and it’s important to PNC. Throughout our company, more than 450 employees have been certified as women’s business advocates and are energetically engaged in helping women who own and run companies achieve financial success in their businesses and personal lives. Through these experts, we provide financial solutions ranging from capital to help grow their business to resources, such as our Insights for Women in Business magazine that inform, inspire and support them. You’ll find more information on how we’re helping women in business achieve at www.pnc.com/women.

Being a great place for women to work is another way PNC fosters the achievement of women in business. In 2010, we were recognized as among the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women by the National Association of Female Executives and among the 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers by Working Mother magazine. Further, as to commemorate Women’s History Month this year, several PNC associates recently shared their experience as businesswomen with career-bound college women. You can view their stories at www.YouTube.com/pnc.

We hope you join us in saluting the women who represent a bright future for our region.
