Briggs and Morgan’s director of attorney recruiting and diversity, Christine Kim, was named a 2016 Supervisor of the Year by the City of Minneapolis STEP-UP youth employment program.

Briggs and Morgan has been involved with the City’s STEP-UP program since 2004, honoring the firm’s commitment to diversity and supporting legal pipeline initiatives. The program is a partnership with AchieveMpls, which grants internship opportunities to Minneapolis youth and young adults ages 14 to 21 facing various barriers to employment, including youth from low-income families, youth of color and youth with disabilities.

Through the STEP-UP program, Kim supervised Briggs and Morgan’s intern, a high school student from Minneapolis, arranging valuable week long learning experiences with different departments within the firm. Her first year supervising the program, Kim was an integral part in facilitating numerous professional-level learning opportunities for Briggs’ intern including administrative work with departments including marketing, finance, records, document production, and facilities as well as opportunities to accompany attorneys to court appearances and legal clinics.

“The STEP-UP program gave Briggs the honor of hosting an exceptional young woman this year,” said Kim. “It’s been our pleasure to mentor and engage our community’s future leaders and professionals.”
