The Johns Hopkins Bayview Diversity Council was honored by the Association of ERGs and Councils as one of the top 25 diversity councils in the United States for a fifth consecutive year. This year, the Council again ranked eighth, keeping their 2014 ranking. The 2015 ERG & Council Honors Award™ recognizes groups that lead diversity and inclusion processes in their organizations and demonstrate results in their workforce, workplace and marketplace.

“Maintaining our ranking among such talented and committed companies from across the country is no small feat,” says Karen Jones, manager of diversity, inclusion and career development at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. “The Diversity Council continues to impact the Medical Center and our community.”

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 American Airlines, AT&T, Comcast NBCUniversal, General Motors, National Guard Bureau and Siemens, 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 employee resource groups, 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.

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.
