Anjali Forber-Pratt, Ph.D. '12 HRE, has made the "Greatest Persons of the Year" list by Huffington magazine, part of the Huffington Post. Each week, Huffington profiled a person "who has made a difference in his or her community, from the 10-year-old Cub Scout who started a charity to the single dad who traveled around the world volunteering with his family.
