Diversity Innovation Grants

The Diversity Innovation Grant (DIG) program began in 2012. In the past 10 years, awardees have represented a wide range of undertakings within the Johns Hopkins Community.

DIG awardees have developed programs and implemented projects with expansive impacts. From all-gender restrooms to speaker series, DIG awardees bring programs and projects that bring diverse perspectives to issues in higher education and increase inclusivity in our community.

DEI and Science Communication addresses the long-standing issue of a lack of diversity in the field of science communication. The project invited distinguished science journalists to speak with science communication professionals to discuss how to approach their work in an inclusive manner.
