Just create a JQL filter stating something like:

issuetype !=Initiatives

Should do the trick.

Thanks for the reply, Jonas. 

My filter look like this: project = PT ORDER BY Rank ASC. How do I adjust it to exclude Initiatives?

My question is why are initiatives shown on the Kanban board when they do not show up in a Scrum board????

This may go against best practice, but what creating a status called "Initiatives" and storing the initiatives here? The status would have no transitions going to or coming from. Crazy... right? but they would be out of the way, especially if the project is an ongoing project with many boards.
