Phil is also the co-lead for the Colorado market’s Inclusive Prospecting initiative, which seeks to increase inclusion in BOKF’s external marketing strategies and internal hiring, retention and promotion programs. Recently, Phil and his team of 10 other representatives from across different lines of business at BOK Financial organized a series of internal and external events to promote inclusion at BOK Financial.
