February 10, 2022 Women Excelling Monthly Meeting
Women Excelling is proud to present special guest speaker Tracy Parmer, Vice President of the Board of Directors of the LGBT Center of Greater Reading. Tracy is employed with Met-Ed/FirstEnergy as a consultant in the Regulatory Affairs Department. She is actively involved in the Company’s’ diversity and inclusion efforts as well as advancing women in leadership and mentorship programs within.
As a woman employed in a predominantly male dominated industry for the last 16 years, she’s learned a thing or two about being “the only” in the room. As someone who also identifies as being part of the LGBTQ community, the feeling and reality of “onlyness” increases exponentially. The majority LGBTQ identifying employees don’t feel truly included in their workplace resulting in decreased productivity, disengagement and eventually turnover. Tracy will discuss some simple adjustments that each of us can make to help our colleagues and teams more diverse and feel truly included.
Tracy has a BS in Criminal Justice from Penn State University, a BS in Applied Psychology from Albright College, an MBA in Community and Economic Leadership from Alvernia University, and is enrolled in the Leadership Berks Class of 2020.
Tracy enjoys mindfulness activities, hiking with her dog, golfing, DIY home projects, and perfecting her grilling skills. Spending time with friends and family is a top priority in Tracy’s life. She enjoys volunteering and empowering others to live their best life. Tracy also sits on the GRCA’s Women2Women Council.
