Women’s series welcomes Tracy Stevens to the stage

Tracy Stevens, external affairs manager for Dominion Energy and Kent State University at Tuscarawas adjunct faculty, is the featured speaker for the next installment of the Women’s Success Series on Feb. 1 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at Kent State University at Tuscarawas.

The cost to attend is $15 when paid in advance and $20 if paid at the door. The fee includes a continental breakfast.

The session also includes networking opportunities and a book discussion. The February 2019 book selection is “Bossypants” by Tina Fey and is available at any Tuscarawas County public library.

The Women’s Success Series is designed to inspire women of all ages and all walks of life to succeed personally and professionally. Each year the leadership series features three women who have obtained a measure of success in Tuscarawas County.

The 2018-19 Women’s Success Series kicked off in November with Carla Birney, superintendent of Dover City Schools. After Stevens’ February presentation, Dr. Chinyere Orafu, board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, will be the featured speaker on April 5.

Stevens serves as the external affairs manager of Dominion Energy, representing the company’s interests in the southern portion of Ohio. Working with local constituents for one of the natural gas arms of the company, she was recruited 25 years ago by then East Ohio Gas while working for The Repository in Stark County.

Stevens also is an adjunct professor at Kent State Tuscarawas, where she has taught communication courses for over 10 years.

Raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Stevens moved to Ohio to complete her education. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Kent State University. An active member of the community, she serves as a board member on several organizations including the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, T4C and Tuscarawas Valley Heritage.

Stevens also dedicates time to her family life with her husband, daughter and grandchildren. In her spare time Stevens likes to cook and relax with a good book.

“Each year we choose three dynamic women to share their own success stories and provide inspiration and a positive impact on our audience,” said Wendy Zucal, director of Dennison Railroad Depot Museum and one of the Women’s Success Series founding members. “In doing so, they inspire our audience to move forward in their own lives and careers. Our audience is an interesting mix of women of all ages and from all walks of life, which results in motivating and thoughtful discussions. Everyone encourages each other and learns something new during the program.”

Registrations are limited to the first 100 participants. Register online at www.eventbrite.com/e/womens-success-series-tracy-stevens-tickets-50869902247.
