Diversity and Inclusion Conference

The Diversity Leadership Council began hosting the Diversity Leadership Conference in 2004, the annual event brings together a cross-section of Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, students and community partners to share best practices, discuss emerging issues, and examine promising research around diversity & inclusion to put them into practice in our professional and academic pursuits.

The conference provides a platform for the Johns Hopkins community to explore and highlight the intersections between the many facets of our work and diversity & inclusion, fostering collaboration and partnership. Past conferences have attracted an audience of approximately 500 attendees, participating in workshops on topics ranging from educational pathways for undocumented students to navigating multigenerational workplaces and beyond.

The 2022 Diversity and Inclusion Conference will be held virtually on Thursday, October 20, 2022, and October 21, 2022.

The conference theme—Inside Out— reflects the importance of expanding both our individual and collective capacities to make sustainable local, regional, and global change for people still impacted negatively by inequitable systems. We invite proposals from internal and external expert scholars, practitioners, and community members on topics that emphasize breaking down barriers and building connections and collaborations across differences. Possible session topics could include cross-discipline collaborations, strategies to help translating research into social justice practice, community-academic partnerships, and strategies for allyship.

This year we are planning on a fully virtual conference.

Sessions are scheduled for 70 minutes. They should be research-based, interactive, and suitable for participants with a range of DEI knowledge and experience.

Registration is open until October 14, 2022, and can be found here.
