IABC/Tulsa Member Earns International Accreditation

IABC/Tulsa member Tracy Harlow has earned IABC’s Accredited Business Communicator (ABC) designation.

IABC’s accreditation process measures the strategic abilities and technical skills of a communicator. In order to become accredited, a candidate must demonstrate the ability to plan, direct, implement and evaluate a broad range of communication programs in practical, real-life situations. The process consists of rigorous evaluation that identifies and recognizes highly qualified, well-rounded communicators through a review of their portfolio of work, and through written and oral examinations. Candidates who meet the requirements of the process earn the ABC designation.

Tracy recently joined the Walmart Global Associate Communications team as a senior director helping to lead communications with the company’s more than two million associates around the world. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Oklahoma State University and held leadership roles in communications at Williams and ConocoPhillips before joining Walmart. Tracy is a past president of the Tulsa Chapter, and received the Communications Professional of the Year award in 2004. She has more than 20 IABC quill and PRSA professional awards for her numerous contributions to the profession.
