CEO, Collective Renaissance Guild

Terrinnee Gundy Briggs is a consummate professional, a learned woman and a loving mom. She credits her education at Clark Atlanta University and the University of Georgia Law School for much of her success, and while most people would revel in those accomplishments, Briggs is humbled by the thought that others would describe her as powerful.    

Briggs, the CEO of Collective Renaissance Guild, cites family as her greatest motivation. As a matter of fact, a comment from her daughter was instrumental in affirming for Briggs that she had found her calling. “… My daughter turned to me and said, ‘I’m going to be a part of CRG when I become an adult,’ ” she says.  

Griggs encourages women to “embrace the power of you, and then use it to change the world.” –m. lee
