Diversity Leadership Council

Comprised of about 50 members from across all nine divisions of Johns Hopkins, the Diversity Leadership Council advises university President Ronald Daniels on matters of diversity and inclusion. It encourages programs that are supporting diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity at the university and health system and urges progress in areas where the institutions need to improve. 

Over nearly a decade, the council has advocated for domestic partner benefits, a more welcoming environment for persons with disabilities, diversity training for supervisors and managers, and the establishment of divisional diversity councils. It has conducted surveys of the university community, given the annual diversity recognition awards, held an annual diversity conference, and created a program for diversity innovation grants.

General members are selected each year through a nomination process and several leadership officials serve as ex-officio members.
