Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council Named One of Top 10 in Country
Date: February 3, 2014
The Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council has been recognized by the Association of Diversity Councils as one of the top 25 diversity councils in the United States for the third year in a row. Ranked tenth this year, the Council improved its standing from 2012. The award is given to organizations that show outstanding contributions through management commitment, measurement, accountability, communication and education. Johns Hopkins Bayview was joined on the top 25 list by Comcast, American Airlines, General Motors and FedEx Freight, to name a few.
The Council was started in 2007 with 42 members and is led by Johns Hopkins Bayview president Richard Bennett, M.D., and Anita Langford, vice president of care management services. In recent months, the Diversity Council has built a relationship with the Baltimore International Rescue Committee to better prepare for refugees from foreign countries who come to the Baltimore area for medical care; begun work on a civility and respect awareness campaign on the Medical Center campus; held a community diversity session to address health needs of the local Bhutanese/Nepali community; and graduated the second cohort of its employee leadership mentoring program.
