The Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis Recognizes Krilogy for Demonstrating a Strong Commitment to Workplace Gender Equity
Krilogy®, an independent wealth management firm with nearly $2 billion in assets, has been recognized by the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis (WFSTL) as a top place for women to work in the fifth annual “Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard.” The firm is among the top 24 St. Louis employers who demonstrate excellence in four areas of workplace gender equity – leadership, compensation, flexible work policies, and recruitment and retention. This is Krilogy’s second appearance on the list.
“Krilogy is committed to creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment, and we’re so proud of the work we’ve done to support the advancement of women,” said Kent Skornia, President and CEO. “The experiences and perspectives of women are vital in the creation of thoughtful, impactful wealth management plans. That’s why we’ve focused a great deal of attention on creating a culture, collection of benefits and professional development opportunities that build a workplace where women excel.”
The Krilogy® 360 initiative, launched in 2018, is a leadership initiative focused on promoting diversity and inclusion in the financial services industry through education, empowerment, and mentorship. Through this program, the firm has grown its population of women many of whom serve in leadership positions at Krilogy®. The team is also actively involved in events which encourage the next generation of women to pursue careers in financial services.
The Women in the Workplace Scorecard recognizes 24 small, medium, and large companies in the St. Louis region who showed a strong commitment to women in the workplace through measurable outcomes, key policies, and best practices. Criteria includes demonstrating results with women in a minimum of 28 percent of top leadership roles; a minimum of 25 percent of women in the top 10 percent of the most highly compensated employees; a starting wage higher than the Missouri minimum wage; family-friendly flexible work policies; and recruitment and retention programs targeted at advancing women.
Unlike many “Best Places to Work” reports that rely on employee opinion surveys, the Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard looks at objective criteria and outcomes. Through a blind data review process by a six-person panel, the Scorecard evaluates company employment practices and their impact on gender diversity. Designated organizational representatives were asked to answer specific questions based on existing policies, practices or employee data.
“This year’s honorees are committed to helping women in the workplace thrive in our region, and they continue to overcome pandemic challenges by ensuring their policies and practices meet the current needs of women,” said Carrie Crompton, executive director of WFSTL. “Many women in the St. Louis region have not returned to the workforce due to a lack of childcare and equitable workplace benefits. The purpose of the Women’s Foundation’s annual Scorecard report is to educate area employers on how to create workplaces where women can be successful.”
