The SKY Initiative

The SKY’s the limit.

SKY is a firmwide initiative to emphasize and strengthen diversity by attracting, retaining, and developing diverse leaders at BKD. Although SKY initially focuses on gender and ethnic diversity, our goal is to identify biases and remove cultural barriers that prevent all BKDers from maximizing their potential—see ourstatement on systemic racismfor more. Together, we aim to create an inclusive BKD culture that leverages our differences, while creating a level playing field for everyone.
