Creating Transformations at Qlik and Beyond, Kehinde Barkley Is a Diversity in Business Award Winner
As a professional services solution lead at King of Prussia-based Qlik, Kehinde Barkley has been recognized as a Diversity in Business Awards 2022 winner, according to a report by Lisa Dukart from the Philadelphia Business Journal.
Over the years in the computer and mathematics industry, Barkley has seen disparities that Black and African Americans have faced and made it a mission to advocate, including co-founding an employee resource group (ERG) for Black employees.
At Qlik, the ERG helps give Black employees a greater sense of belonging and allowing them to connect with people of all races. The ERG supports diverse employees and local organizations to create scholarship opportunities and career up-skilling advancements.
“I’m motivated by making things better,” said Barkley. “Whether that’s making a process more efficient, identifying an untapped opportunity, or creating a more inclusive work environment, I’m motivated by leaving things better than I found them.”
Beyond Qlik, Barley has spearheaded the sponsorship of the Philadelphia Chapter of Blacks in Technology. Another passion of his is advocating for Qlik’s software, training, and grant programs to go towards Black-owned businesses and nonprofits, as well as social justice organizations.
