Federal Strategy

Goal: Increase the under-represented racial/ethnic and LGBTQ diversity of the JHU experts/faculty and external luminaries we elevate as part of our signature initiatives. 

Future State

  • In future, we want the signature series to embrace and engage diverse identities, perspectives and experiences so members of our community and external stakeholders benefit from the greatest variety of viewpoints. We strive to deliver programming in which more of the featured speakers represent under-represented racial/ethnic groups and/or LGBTQ communities. 


  • We will continue to build and foster programs that support and celebrate diverse people and ideas as we expand our capacity from virtual only to in-person events as part of the launch of 555 Pennsylvania Avenue in partnership with the Office of Interdisciplinary Initiatives.
