The Johns Hopkins Diversity Leadership Council, established in 1997, is in the process of identifying faculty, staff, and students to serve on the DLC. The council advises the president and senior leadership on diversity issues and is charged to:
- Recommend and promote policies, programs, and other initiatives that will attract and retain a diverse mix of faculty, staff, and students;
- Examine formal and informal structures and processes that inhibit Johns Hopkins from being more inclusive and recommend changes that foster greater inclusion;
- Promote diversity awareness education across Johns Hopkins;
- Foster partnerships with Baltimore community leaders to encourage greater community involvement by various divisions of Johns Hopkins.
The DLC meets once a month. Membership, which is for one- to three-year terms, requires a commitment to working with fellow DLC members and stakeholders across Jphns Hopkins.
Joining the DLC is a unique opportunity to make a significant impact in advancing diversity and inclusion at Hopkins. DLC members are expected to:
- Attend 75% of meetings and events scheduled every month for two hours;
- Prepare for meetings by reviewing the agenda and supporting materials prior to meetings;
- Participate in meetings by asking questions, taking responsibility, and following through on assignments.
The nomination period closes Friday, May 15.
