Announcements from the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity

  • At Johns Hopkins Medicine, we strive to offer all our employees a welcoming environment and the opportunity to realize their potential.

    October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This month, our goal is to raise awareness about disability employment issues and celebrate the contributions of employees with disabilities. We are honored to pay tribute to the accomplishments of our valued faculty and staff members, trainees and patients who are living with a disability.

    Please take this opportunity to learn about the extraordinary ways your colleagues contribute to their jobs and their community. Meet National Disability Employment Awareness Month Achievers Award recipient Erica Avery, a graduate student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

    In support of our dedication to inclusion and diversity, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity will host a listening session on Oct. 28 from noon–1 p.m. to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month and chart our path forward. We welcome you to join us in our efforts to advance inclusion for students, staff and faculty members with disabilities at Johns Hopkins.

    To learn more about the history and meaning of disability awareness, take a moment to review this NDEAM information guide, which offers additional resources.

  • To Johns Hopkins Medicine leadership

    “If I had to prioritize what I teach, I’d say that caring is the most important thing.”

    — Levi Watkins Jr.

    Dear Colleagues,

    Great leaders transcend their roles and become enduring examples of excellence. Levi Watkins Jr. — beloved pioneer in cardiac surgery and civil rights, and founder of our Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration — left the Johns Hopkins community and so many others with this extraordinary legacy. In his honor, we are opening nominations for the 2022 Levi Watkins Jr. Ideals Award.

    This award, which is distinct from the Martin Luther King Jr. Award for Community Service, recognizes a Johns Hopkins Medicine leader at the level of manager or above who has made outstanding contributions to Johns Hopkins Medicine. Previous recipients include Kathleen Page, associate professor of infectious disease at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; Sherita Hill Golden, vice president and chief diversity officer for Johns Hopkins Medicine; and Kenneth Grant, former vice president, supply chain, for the Johns Hopkins Health System. The award recognizes a leader’s commitment to Johns Hopkins’ core values of excellence and discovery, leadership and integrity, diversity and inclusion, and respect and collegiality. Eligible candidates must demonstrate a breadth of contributions to a greater cause through extensive career experience.

    To nominate a colleague or yourself, complete an online form by Friday, Nov 5. The award’s review panel of Johns Hopkins employees will confirm the selection in November. The awardee will be recognized as part of the 2022 MLK Jr. Commemoration events in January.

     We look forward to your nominations.

     Thank you,

     The Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Committee
