Panelist Bio


Stephanie Riegel
Greater Baton Rouge Business Report

Stephanie Riegel is a veteran print and broadcast journalist who, for the past three and a half years, has been editor of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, where her primarily responsibilities revolve around developing content both for the magazine and its twice-daily online Daily Report. Riegel has always loved research, reporting and writing so a career in journalism was almost second nature to her. She grew up in New Orleans, and attended LSU, where she received a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1988. She also attended Tulane University, where she received a master’s degree in history and lived briefly in Washington DC, where she worked for political consultant Raymond Strother. Her career has taken her from print to broadcast—she was a reporter and occasional anchor at WWL-TV in New Orleans for 12 years—to freelance PR and back to print. She came to Baton Rouge with her family in 2005 with Hurricane Katrina and has since made Baton Rouge her new home. She is married to Greg Woolverton, also of New Orleans, who is a self-employed IT consultant specializing in electronic document management and migration. They have three children, twin daughters Allison and Madeleine—both freshmen at Tulane in New Orleans—and Michael, a freshman at Catholic High.

Current Topic


     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:
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society for Human Resource Management
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell
- Allison A. Jones; Jones & Wilhite
- Janice Lansing, Governor Edwards’ Task Force on Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Policy

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney and Southern University Vice President for External Affairs, Robyn Merrick, host the discussion.
