Did you know? At the current pace of progress, it will take another257 years for women to catch up to men from an economic perspective.
This astounding stat from the World Economic Forum’s 2020 Global Gender Gap Report sheds light on the progress remaining for women to achieve financial equality. And for Greenville-based Sherrie Turner, Vice President and Relationship Manager for PNC’s Commercial Banking business locally, it motivates her to help cultivate opportunities to empower women in business throughout the Upstate + beyond.
Central to PNC Project 257, launched in 2021, is the bank’s collaboration with Coralus(formerly SheEO). Coralus is a global nonprofit organization that helps address one of the major barriersfueling the 257-year economic gender gap: a lack of access to capital for women.
How? By providing women + nonbinary entrepreneurs with interest-free loans and an ecosystem of support.
To build on her advocacy platform for women in business, Sherrie serves as a Coralus Activator, contributing to Coralus’ loan pool and sharing her expertise + professional networks to help underrepresented entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses.
“Empowering women in business has been a major personal and professional focus for me throughout my career in banking and finance,” says Sherrie. “I am fortunate that PNC shares my passion and leverages its influence and resources to move the needle for economic equality in the communities we serve.”
