- Ellen Ernst Kossek, a faculty member in Purdue University's Krannert School of Management, will present two major lectures in Europe in the coming weeks related to her expertise in work-family issues. On June 29, Kossek will give the annual Alec Rodger Memorial Lecture at Birkbeck, a part of the University of London. Rodger was a renowned and field-shaping professor of occupational psychology at that university. Kossek's lecture is titled "New Frontiers in Work-family Research: A Vision for the Future in a Global World." On July 5, Kossek will be a featured speaker at the International Conference of Women and Leadership at IESE Business School in the University of Navarra in Barcelona, Spain. The Financial Times ranks IESE as a top ten business school in the European Union. Kossek's address, "Opting Out or Pushed Out: Advancing Women's Career Equality," will be based on a paper just published in the Journal of Management with Lusi Wu, a Krannert doctoral student, and Rong Su, formerly an assistant professor of psychological sciences at Purdue focused on industrial-organizational psychology. Kossek is the Basil S. Turner Professor of Management at Purdue and research director of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence.
