ORIX USA's Brittany Byrd Receives Young Leader Award

ORIX USA is pleased to announce that Brittany Byrd, Associate General Counsel for the company, is the recipient of a Young Leader Award given by the Dallas Women’s Foundation.

Recognizing leaders who have blazed the trail for women in their industries and communities, the award was given to Brittany due to her founding of Girls Embracing Mothers (GEM), a nonprofit dedicated to empowering girls with mothers in prison to break the cycle of incarceration and lead successful lives with vision and purpose. After experiencing the incarceration of her own mother, Byrd recognized the necessity of an organization focused on the needs of children with parents in prison.

Byrd is among seven women who will be honored at the Dallas Women’s Foundation’s Leadership Forum & Awards Dinner on April 21.
