APSAC's Hadley speaker series to present Krannert’s Meara Habashi
Meara Habashi, assistant head of the Krannert School’s Department of Management, will give a workshop-style presentation, “Overcoming Obstacles to Achieve Success,” on May 7 in the annual Richard A. Hadley APSAC Professional Development Series.
The event, sponsored by the Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee, will be at 11:30 a.m. in Pfendler Hall’s Deans Auditorium (Room 241). Everyone is invited to attend, with supervisor approval. Registration will not be required for the event, but seating is limited. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch during the event.
Habashi, who is a clinical assistant professor in the Organizational Behavior/Human Resources area, also is a center research fellow in Krannert’s Brock-Wilson Center for Women in Management. After earning a BS in psychology from Baylor University and MS in social psychology from Purdue, she received her PhD in social psychology in 2008 from Purdue. Since that time, she has spent a number of years teaching and researching at various institutions. Habashi joined the faculty at Krannert in 2016 after spending five years at the University of Iowa.
The Hadley series is named for a Purdue alumnus and past Purdue employee who was a founding member of APSAC. Richard Hadley was a senior mechanical engineer at Purdue for almost 25 years before his death in 1993. The Hadley presentations are presented each spring and are intended to provide career enrichment for University staff members.
The series is supported by the Richard Hadley Memorial APSAC Fund for Staff Development. Gifts to that fund will help continue the series.
