In our historically male industry, we’ve seen an exciting shift in dynamics over the past few years: an increasing number of top job candidates, clients, and partners in decision-making roles are women. For Kimley-Horn, this shift was the catalyst for our LIFT (Lasting Impact for Tomorrow) initiative, which aims to recruit, develop, and retain talented women. We believe that by increasing the number of women leading large practices in our firm, we’ll create a better Kimley-Horn—one with strengthened client service, enhanced growth, stronger profitability, and an enriched culture.
