Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council
The Diversity Council was formed in 2007 to bring together members from the Medical Center's administrative leadership team and other hospital champions to help create a more inclusive environment at Johns Hopkins Bayview. The council includes a demographic and occupational cross-section of Medical Center employees and medical staff, representing a wide variety of job functions, life experiences, cultural backgrounds and organizational affiliations. Four sub-committees focus on identifying methods of integrating cultural competencies into current programs, such as patient care and safety, service excellence and employee engagement.

Healthy Community Partnership
The Healthy Community Partnership grew out of relationships that Johns Hopkins Bayview established with a number of area religious congregations. Embracing the principles of dialogue, mutual education and respect, these partnerships support initiatives that help to:
- Improve access to medical care;
- Offer educational programs on health topics that impact the community;
- Equip individuals and groups with needed resources and tools to become stronger advocates for good health and medical care; and,
- Address health care disparities.
