The Johns Hopkins Diversity Leadership Council, established in 1997, is a group that advises the president and senior leadership on diversity issues across the enterprise in the following ways:
- Recommends and promotes policies, programs, and other initiatives that will attract and retain a diverse mix of faculty, staff, and students
- Examines formal and informal structures and processes that inhibit Johns Hopkins from being more inclusive and recommends changes that foster greater inclusion
- Promotes diversity awareness education across Johns Hopkins
- Organizes signature programs such as the Diversity Leadership Conference, Diversity Innovation Grant Program, and the annual Diversity Awards
- Fosters partnerships with Baltimore community leaders to encourage greater community involvement by various divisions of Johns Hopkins
The membership nomination window is open, and we are seeking faculty, staff, and students to serve as new members on the DLC. Members are expected to:
- Serve one-year (students) or three-year (faculty and staff) terms
- Attend 75% of monthly two-hour DLC meetings and DLC events
- Join and actively participate in one workgroup and one subcommittee
Joining the DLC is a unique opportunity to make a significant impact in advancing diversity and inclusion at Hopkins.
