When Kim joined Bank of America in 2014, she led her teammates to expand their employee networks from five networks to nine networks to create more inclusivity in the workplace. Those new employee networks include Black Professionals Group, Native American Professionals Network, Military + Support Assistance Group and My Environment. Her team also launched a local diversity leaders council so that every network could better collaborate together to thoughtfully create a culture of intersectionality and inclusion. Kim works closely with local diversity leaders to host multiple conversations with employees and local community and business leaders to talk about challenging issues facing the community. Outside of the workplace, Kim is the national founding board chair and cofounding team member of The Respect Institute. The Respect Institute’s impact has been acknowledged by the Clinton Global Initiative, Ashoka Changemakers, and the Packard Foundation for reaching over 80,000 youth and youth influencers in schools and the juvenile justice system with their Respect 360 program focused on ending the school to prison pipeline, which disproportionately impacts BAME youth in the United States. Kim also serves on the national Juma Ventures board as well as the local Seattle advisory board.
