Dr. Luciana Turchick Hakak obtained her PhD in Organization Studies at the Schulich School of Business, York University. Her PhD dissertation explores how immigrants make sense of their career transitions and changes to their identity following their arrival to Canada. Her main research interests lie in the two distinct but often complementary fields of Diversity in the Workplace and Work-Related Identification.
Dr. Hakak has presented research papers at national and international conferences and published her research in peer-reviewed journals such as IJHRM and JABS. She has also worked as a manager of Human Resources at several major multinational organizations, in the financial services and technology industries.
Dr. Hakak teaches in the areas of Management, Organizational Studies, and Human Resources.

I have a great appreciation for the professor who pushed me to get my CA designation. Isn’t it crazy how a little conversation can change your life so completely. Keith’s guidance alone has given me a lifetime of happiness and wealth. If I had gone to a larger university who knows if something like that would have ever happened. I am very proud of the route I took, but I wouldn’t have gotten there without my professors at UFV.
