Oak Ridge Associated Universities has named Mae Mosley director of employee relations and diversity.
In her new position, Mosley will manage and direct ORAU’s employee relations and diversity, and oversee the organization’s occupational health functions, services and programs.
Additionally, Mosley will provide advice and consultation to employees, managers, and ORAU executives relating to disciplinary processes, human behavior modification, equal employment, and affirmative action goals. She will also serve as a technical advisor to the ORAU Diversity Council.
“Mae brings more than 30 years of employee relations and workforce development expertise to her new role at ORAU,” said ORAU President and Chief Executive Officer Andy Page. “Her knowledge of strategic planning, diversity management systems, as well as internal and external customer relationship management strategies will serve as a tremendous asset to ORAU as we continually strive to remain a great place to work in a dynamic environment.”
In addition to her new role with ORAU, Mosley also serves as president and founder of Markets Demand More LLC, a human resources consulting firm she established in 2007 in Knoxville. The firm, which services nonprofit and for-profit businesses, uses large corporate business concepts to support the financial viability of smaller organizations.
