In a 2020 episode of the Thomas Industry Update Podcast, former Thomas President and CEO Tony Uphoff spoke with FH Paschen’s Director of Governmental Relations and External Affairs Mary Person. Person’s 14 years of industry experience spans the Chicago Transit Authority and Senate Diversity Task Force for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Minority Business Enterprises, and Women Business Enterprises, where she continues to advocate for diversity across industry. According to Person, the answer to industry’s skills gap could lie in diversity hiring and better engaging demographics that have otherwise sat untapped for decades. Broaching the subject can be sensitive, Person acknowledges, but she’s already seeing progress being made across industrial sectors, especially in construction and companies that want to ensure continued growth for their brand.
