Panelist Bio


Charles Reith
Adjunct Professor at Tulane Board of Directors of the Alliance for Affordable Energy

Charles Reith serves on the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Affordable Energy, a nonprofit based in New Orleans that advocates ratepayer rights and environmentally responsible policies relative to energy, pollution, and global warming. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Environmental Management at The AB Freeman School of Business and The Payson Center for International Development, both at Tulane University. Dr. Reith founded and owns several small businesses and has been very active in the post-Katrina rebuild, serving on committees and preparing white papers that articulate the opportunities for environmental stewardship during this re-formative period.

Pre-Katrina, he maintained an active international consulting practice, guiding major corporations and ministries in countries such as Abu Dhabi, Peru, and Trinidad on methods of energy efficiency, reduced risk, and improved performance relative to global warming. He first came to Louisiana in 1994 to serve as Vice President for Environmental Safety and Health at DynMcDermott Petroleum Operations Company, where he oversaw environmental issues on the Department of Energy's Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Before coming to Louisiana, Dr. Reith worked for Jacobs Engineering, planning and supervising projects to clean up toxic contamination and safely dispose of radioactive waste. He has published three books and dozens of technical articles on environmental technology, green business, and sustainable development.

Current Topic


     02/18 - Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana

How widespread is the problem in our state?
Governor John Bel Edward’s deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned in November due to allegations of sexual harassment. A month earlier, celebrity chef John Besh stepped down from his restaurant management group after sexual harassment accusations. Charges of sexual misconduct in the workplace against celebrities and government officials made state and national headlines during the last several months of 2017.

How widespread is the problem in our state? Where is the distinction drawn between boorish acts and abusive behavior? Is every circumstance unique or should all offenders be dealt with in the same manner? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana” Wednesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, February 27)

Panelists:
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell; Senate Select Committee on Women and Children
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society of Human Resource
- Janice Lansing, Chairperson of Governor Edwards’ Sexual Harassment & Discrimination Policy Task Force
- Allison A. Jones; attorney; Downer, Jones & Wilhite in Shreveport

Robyn Merrick will host.
