Panelist Bio


Allen Reynolds
Former State Civil Service Director, Retired State Employees Association Board Member

Allen began his career with the Department of State Civil Service in 1973. He served in several different positions within the Department including Undersecretary and Deputy Director. The State Civil Service Commission appointed him as Director in May 1996, first in an acting capacity and then later as the permanent Director. He served in that position until he retired in May 2005.

Under his leadership the Department and Commission implemented several major changes in the Civil Service program. Partially as a result of these initiatives, the International Public Management Association for Human Resources selected the Department for its Large Agency of the Year Award in 2003.

During his career, Allen was active in several professional organizations. He also served for many years as a member and Chairman of Louisiana’s Comprehensive Public Training Program, the state’s management development program. He received the Charles E. Dunbar Career Service Award and the Monte M. Lemann Award in recognition of his contributions to the State of Louisiana.

Following retirement, he became active in the Retired State Employees Association serving first as President of the Baton Rouge Chapter and then later as Executive Director. He currently serves as an at-large member of the Association Board.

Allen and his wife, Flory, have two children and spend as much time as possible with them and their five grandchildren.

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

How widespread is the problem in our state? Take the survey!
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
