Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center's Diversity Council Ranked Eighth in the United States

October 16, 2014

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council was honored by the Association of Diversity Councils as one of the top 25 diversity councils in the United States for a fourth consecutive year. This year, the council ranked eighth, improving their standings from the previous year. The 2014 ERG & Council Honors Award ™ recognizes groups that lead diversity and inclusion processes in their organizations and demonstrate results in their workforce, workplace and marketplace.

“We’re proud of our progress and will continue to work to make the Medical Center team culturally competent and respectful,” says Karen Jones, manager of diversity, inclusion and career development at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. “The strategic action teams of our Diversity Council are dedicated to creating a positive, meaningful impact on our culture of diversity and inclusion. This award honors their efforts and outcomes.”

Applications were submitted by diversity councils and employee resource groups and evaluated on contributions and achievements in four categories: Demonstrated Council Results; Demonstrated Management Commitment; Measurement and Accountability; and Communication and Education.

The recipients include corporations, the military and nonprofit organizations. Joining Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center on the list of top 25 diversity councils are Johns Hopkins HealthCare, FedEx Freight, U.S. Navy, The Boeing Company and The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., among others.  

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council serves as an advisory group to the Medical Center leadership and works across departments and specialties to create strategies to foster cultural competence, civility, respect and collegiality, robust and diverse talent pools, leadership development, and mutually beneficial relationships with the community. 

Some of the Council’s projects include educational workshops, internal (employee) and external websites, leadership and management development programs and an inspirational civility and respect campaign. The Council’s cultural awareness teams are responsible for creating awareness and appreciation of the diverse populations on our campus. New this year, one of the strategic action teams of the Council organized a community health fair, Steps in a Safe and Healthy Direction. This event included a 5k run and walk, children’s activities and interactive information tables showcasing various local organizations.

By integrating diversity and inclusion into the culture and operations of the Medical Center, the Council stimulates a welcoming, healing environment to meet the diverse needs of its community and provides safe, high-quality health care for all patients.
