A&P Diversity Council - Laura Stehura
My professional career began as a labor relations consultant for the Office of Collective Bargaining in Ohio’s Department of Administrative Services. I transferred to the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission (now Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities) as the Labor Relations Manager, serving in numerous HR roles for more than 20 years. I left the State of Ohio as the Personnel Administrator for the Department of Corrections to join Ohio State in autumn 2011.
I received my B.A. in Psychology, Masters in Public Administration, and Masters in Labor and Human Resources from Ohio State. I am a member of the Society for Human Resources Management and am certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and a Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP).
As A&P’s Human Resources Director, I help support Facilities Operations and Development, Planning and Real Estate, UniPrint, and Shared Services. In May 2015, I was designated A&P’s Chief Diversity Officer, thus becoming the chair of the A&P Diversity Council, which received the university’s Distinguished Diversity Enhancement Award in 2016.
