Diversity Leadership Awards

The Diversity Recognition Awards program began in 2003 in order to recognize outstanding work being done in the Johns Hopkins community to advance diversity and inclusion.

In the past 19 years, the DLC has recognized more than 200 individual and group awardees for their efforts to make their workplace more inclusive, contributions to scholarship that investigates diversity in their area of study, and creating partnerships with the community. Awardees are recognized at the annual Awards Recognition Ceremony, where we come together to celebrate their achievements. Please see below for the 2022 awardees.
