Johns Hopkins Medicine Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) 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. 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 one of our three system-wide ERGs: The Hopkins Diaspora, Hopkins Familia and Hopkins Veterans.
The Hopkins Diaspora
A group for African American/Black employees and allies.
Co-Chair, Tia Hooks-Jorge
Supervisor, Admitting and Registration, Johns Hopkins Hospital
A group for Hispanic/Latinx employees and allies.

Sr. Quality Innovation Coach, JHU/SOM/Armstrong Institute
Co-Chair, April Lugo
Program Coordinator Diversity, Inclusion, and Health Equity, JHM Office of Diversity & Inclusion
A group for former, retired and active military staff members, their families and allies.
We are planning to launch the LGBTQ & Allies ERG and start an Asian American & Allies ERGs and Disability & Allies ERG in the near future.
Our ERGs currently meet via Zoom to practice physical distancing while facilitating participation across the enterprise. If you want to learn more about or join an ERG, email us at Diversity@jhmi.edu. If you would like to receive our weekly newsletter, click here and hit send.
