Panelist Bio


Stacey Chiasson
Dow Chemical Company

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.

Current Topic


     02/17 - Black & the Blue

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve?
Last year’s shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. Nationwide demonstrations were ultimately marred by the targeted ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas and the killing of three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge. What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve? How can Louisiana’s Capital City productively move beyond these events? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on a special town hall edition, “Black & the Blue” Wednesday, February 22 at 7pm; Sunday, February 26 at 1pm and Tuesday, February 28 at 10pm after the State of the Union address on LPB HD. In New Orleans on WLAE, Wednesday, February 22 at 7 PM. (Recorded Monday, February 20)

Our panelists will be:
• Fr. Rick Andrus, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Together BR
• Darrell Basco, state president of Fraternal Order of Police
• Sharon Weston Broome, Mayor-President of Baton Rouge
• Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge; Public Safety Task Force
• Stephanie Riegel; Greater Baton Rouge Business Report

LPB CEO Beth Courtney and Reverend Raymond Jetson, pastor of Star Hill Church host the program. Robyn Merrick with the Southern University System and Bob Mann with LSU’s Manship School will moderate the discussion.
