SHRM and the News Media

Jul 21, 2016

Dana Bash, left, CNN chief political correspondent, moderated a discussion Wednesday at the Republication National Convention in Cleveland. Participants were Amanda Carpenter, CNN political commentator and former communications director for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Donna Brazile, vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, political analyst and the first black person to direct a major presidential campaign as campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000. 

Henry G. "Hank" Jackson, president and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), opened the discussion by noting that presidential election issues such as job creation, health care and immigration are also HR issues that impact business. 

"These are the issues where no profession is more qualified to provide input," Jackson said. He urged CNN, SHRM's media partner and host of the discussion, to interview more HR professionals, "who can add some expertise to the real effects of proposed legislation."
