Krilogy® has been recognized by the St. Louis Business Journal, Best Places to Work 2020 with the “Advancement of Women Award.” The award is given to workplaces which demonstrate a culture of advancement for female employees.
Since the firm’s founding in 2009, Krilogy® has focused on building a team that encompasses a variety of perspectives and experiences. Krilogy President and CEO, Kent Skornia, believes that “a broad base of perspectives allows us to be the best version of ourselves possible. To accomplish this, we’ve taken a serious and deliberate approach to diversity, managing the recruitment process as an educational endeavor to advance the profession to a broader spectrum of women.”
In 2018, the firm launched Krilogy® 360⁰, a diversity and inclusion initiative that is driven by a collective passion to create awareness about careers in the industry, provide financial education, embrace philanthropy, and support women in financial services. Women at all levels within Krilogy® are actively engaged in this effort and have found that women welcome an opportunity to connect with, and relate to, other females in the industry. Through Krilogy® 360⁰, team members have participated in local high school education days, held educational seminars for professional women in St. Louis and Dallas, and hosted networking events.
“The numbers tell the story,” said Skornia. “Women make up approximately 33% of our workforce at Krilogy® and represent 27% of our senior leadership team, a figure which far exceeds the industry average of 15%. Many have tailored their practices to focus on women, who will control the nation’s wealth by 2030 and who are responsible for the majority of household financial decisions. The need to serve women into the future will continue to grow, and Krilogy® is ready.”
Krilogy® Partner and Director of Operations, Jaime Shelton, was joined by several female team members at a recent ceremony to accept the award. The complete article describing Krilogy’s advancement of women initiatives can be found online on the St. Louis Business Journal’s website.
