Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) Employee Resource Groups are made up of staff members, typically from underrepresented groups, and their allies who volunteer to come together based on a common purpose or background or on shared interests. These ERGs foster an inclusive workplace, giving employees opportunities to benefit from our community, contribute to patients’ experiences and develop our existing diverse talent. ERG activities can include seminars and panel discussions and community events. All Johns Hopkins Medicine employees are invited to join our system-wide and entity ERGs. Each ERG is led by two co-chairs who oversee the ERG, as well as co-chairs for patient, community and workforce subcommittees. Each ERG offers volunteer opportunities. Activities and events align with the mission, vision, core values and strategic priorities of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
