The BKD PRIDE Award

The BKD PRIDE Award was created in 2003 to honor individuals who exemplify BKD’s PRIDE values in extraordinary ways. This prestigious award is presented annually to a partner and an employee, who are nominated by their peers within the firm. Award winners are recognized at BKD’s annual leadership conference, where they receive the coveted BKD PRIDE bowl.
