Meredith Z. Avakian-Hardaway not only makes contributions daily in her role as the public affairs specialist at E.I. DuPont de Nemours (DuPont), she dedicates her time in the local community, mentors and shares her talents and expertise with others.

She's helped to revitalize DuPont’s Women's Network, Wildlife Habitat Council, safety team, Ambassadors team and also created a communications committee. Most notably, under Avakian-Hardaway's leadership, DuPont now has a site newsletter, which is the first formal publication the site has had in nearly 20 years.
