Heidi Mason is a Panelist at the 2019 SHRM Employment Law & Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.
Heidi Mason joins the Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation panel to demystify employment of people with criminal backgrounds at the 2019 SHRM Employment Law & Legislative Conference.
With passage of the SHRM-supported First Step Act, Congress sent a clear signal that employment of individuals with criminal records is a nonpartisan issue. Nearly 700,000 people are released from prison each year and are often locked out of the job market. Those who have served their time should not be overlooked by employers, especially when businesses are experiencing a human capital crisis. SHRM is continuing the momentum of the legislation with a nationwide call for business leaders and individuals to pledge to consider all qualified candidates. Join this session where representatives from Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation, one of the first companies to commit to inclusive hiring, shares their calling to demystify employment of people with criminal backgrounds. After listening to their origin story, you’ll hear from a host of experts that demonstrate the power, possibility and practicality of embracing this employment philosophy.
