Johns Hopkins University is deeply committed to the dignity and equality of all persons—inclusive of sex, gender, marital status, pregnancy, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, and veteran status.
Johns Hopkins Initiatives
The Roadmap 2020 Task Force is charged with reviewing and assessing the JHU Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion and developing a set of recommendations for our next five years, with measurable goals and accountabilities that will help us identify and build on successes and act to address areas where improvement is necessary.
The Office leads JHU efforts to foster an environment that is inclusive, respectful and free from discrimination and harassment. In its role, OIE ensures compliance with affirmative action and equal opportunity laws, investigates discrimination and sexual harassment complaints, and serves as a central resource for those with disabilities or those who require religious accommodation.
Within the OIE, there is a list of confidential University resources. None of these resources would require any involvement by OIE, but could provide help and support.
The School’s Strategic Plan prioritizes the cultivation of a diverse, inclusive, and nurturing environment for students, faculty, staff, and the community. This means striving to be an institution where all people, especially those who are historically marginalized, disenfranchised, or excluded, can thrive. But meaningful change and impact necessitates bold action and investments.
The Office of Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, and Equity (IDARE) supports efforts to dismantle structural oppression and racist policies and practices within the Bloomberg School, our community, and public health.
The Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Civility is made up of students, faculty, and staff at the School. In cooperation with the IDARE Office, the Committee acts as an advising body for diverse equity-related initiatives at the Bloomberg School and in the Baltimore community.
With initial funding from the PhD Professional Development Innovation Initiative of the Johns Hopkins University Provost Office, this program fosters community and belonging among historically underrepresented PhD students and postdoctoral fellows across all JHSPH academic departments and research centers through facilitating networking and enhancing professional development. The Program also aims to improve retention and success of underrepresented PhD students and postdoctoral fellows both at the Bloomberg School and in the public health workforce.
We envision a Johns Hopkins Medicine where diversity, equity, and inclusion are in our DNA, and where together we commit to:
- Embracing and celebrating our differences
- Educating and developing our staff and learners
- Engaging in equitable healthcare delivery and workforce practices
