Stacey Chiasson serves as public affairs leader for the integrated sites of The Dow Chemical Company in Louisiana. Chiasson leads Dow’s public affairs team in Plaquemine and Hahnville. She oversees public affairs support at Dow sites in Grand Bayou, Greensburg, Sterlington and Weeks Island.
Stacey joined Dow in 2006. Prior to joining Dow, she was executive director of Career Builders. Career Builders began as a school-to-work partnership under a federal grant that was scheduled to sunset in 1999. Chiasson took the grant program and transformed it into a public-private non-profit that now has over $1million in workforce development contracts.
Chiasson started her career as a high school business teacher in Iberville parish but soon noticed that she could assist young people in making smarter education and career decisions by working on the outside of the system. She has work experience in the Louisiana Legislature, LSU as a workforce development research assistant, and private business as a performance improvement consultant. Her diverse experiences have served her well as an interpreter between government, education, and business.
Chiasson holds a BS degree in Business Education from LSU. She was named “Top 40 under 40” in 2003 by The Baton Rouge Business Report and was also nominated as Young Woman of Achievement by the YWCA in 2002. Stacey received Volunteer of the Year Award through the Iberville Chamber of Commerce in 2010.
Chiasson is a member of the board of directors of Baton Rouge Green, Iberville Chamber of Commerce (Economic Development Chairman), and YMCA of the Capital Area.
Stacey has one child, Jackson who is 7.
