PNC Financial Services Group has joined the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce as a Gold Founding Member, the organization announced on May 9.
The announcement comes just days before the chamber hosts its Madison launch event at 5:30 p.m. on May 14 at Plan B, 924 Williamson St.
“PNC has a strong commitment to diversity and to the LGBT community,” said Jason Rae, the chamber’s executive director. “They share our strong desire in helping LGBT-owned and allied businesses succeed and prosper here in Wisconsin.”
The Human Rights Campaign recently named PNC as one of the best places for LGBT people to work. “As part of our commitment to serve our employees, customers and communities, PNC observes seven history and heritage months designated by the U.S. Congress as national celebrations, including Pride month,” said PNC Wisconsin regional president Chris Goller.
PNC was founded in 1852 and has 34 branches throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
“The LGBT Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to working with PNC as we grow the LGBT business community in our great state,” said Rae.
The Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce is an organization of LGBT and LGBT-allied businesses, corporations and professionals that offers networking opportunities, business development efforts and educational programming to its members.
The Madison launch event is open to the public. For more information, go to www.wislgbtchamber.com.
