“As my personal mentor, it is my highest honor to stand at the helm of an organization whose members came together to recognize such an incredible man and leader within the workforce industry of Florida,” says Amy Evancho, President and CEO of FEDC. “Mason’s hard work, commitment and dedication to workforce development makes him truly deserving of this award.”
The Toni Jennings award is given in recognition of the achievements of an outstanding workforce developer within the state of Florida. Established in 2007, this honor recognizes the former Lieutenant Governor’s exceptional leadership in revamping Florida’s workforce system to respond to critical workforce needs and advance local, regional and state economic development.
Mason has directed the efforts of Broward County’s workforce development efforts for 25 years and led the organization through many changes including the enormous and fast growth the county has faced over the years. Today, Broward County is known for its strong, diverse workforce, which is a reason many companies choose to locate in Broward County.
Mason has overcome any and all challenges by staying abreast of the latest changes in the field of workforce development, and the newest technologies and engaging leaders in the community to support the work and mission of WorkForce One.
