My favorite conversation was with Mike Masserman who regaled me with the tale of how he met BMe Leader Chris Wilson at Break.out Baltimore and 3 days after hearing Chris’ amazing story the folks at Lyft were debating whether to shy away from supporting “Ban-the-box” – the anti-employment discrimination initiative. Mike told me they were being advised to not participate but because he knew Chris’ story, Mike was on the side that successfully argued Lyft to be pro human rights in this regard. Just meeting Chris Wilson through Break.out changed corporate policy and supported human rights. Pretty sweet. --- Trabian Shorters. BMe
