Briggs and Morgan hosted the first in its 2016 Diversity Forum series, featuring Global Rights for Women, on May 9, 2016. Global Rights for Women is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting women’s rights internationally by partnering with organizations around the world to enforce laws, train individuals to advocate and support women’s rights, and monitor the implementation of law, policies and practices.

Briggs’ Diversity Forum included the executive director of Global Rights for Women and former Briggs attorney, Cheryl Thomas, who shared the organization’s mission and strategies for legal and systematic reform to help women achieve equal human rights and freedom from violence.

Supporting Global Rights for Women, and serving as a sponsor for the organization’s 2016 Fall Fundraiser, helps to propel Briggs’ aspiration for diversity and inclusion within the firm and the legal profession, as well equal rights for all individuals. Further affirming the firm’s support of Global Rights for Women, Briggs attorney Helen Meyer serves on the organization’s board of directors.
