Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, & Equity
The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has established an Office of Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, and Equity (IDARE) to act as a resource and support for prioritizing the cultivation of a diverse, inclusive, and nurturing environment for students, faculty, and staff.
A Department that values, cultivates and advocates for anti-racism, diversity, inclusivity, and equity; and promotes an environment in which every member of our community is empowered to achieve their full potential.
The IDARE Committee strives to promote anti-racism, equity and diversity. We seek to create an inclusive community that values diversity of thought, identity and affiliation within a supportive working and learning environment.
The goals of the IDARE committee are to:
- Incorporate anti-racism, equity, diversity and inclusiveness into our educational curriculum and training programs for staff and faculty;
- Provide opportunities and resources for our community to learn how to practice anti-racism, support equity, and recognize and respect diversity;
- Develop employment practices, policies, and procedures that accelerate the recruitment and retention of a diverse workforce and student body; and
- Create mechanisms to review the Department’s progress toward fulfilling the IDARE vision and mission.
Once you have read this and accept it, please say it out loud to yourself, your spouse/partner, children or a good friend. And then please practice it.
"As a member of the EHE Department, I pledge to make our department stronger and our work more impactful by:
- acting in a way that supports diversity and inclusivity and honors individual differences;
- practicing anti-racism;
- using language that promotes inclusivity and anti-racism; and
- listening carefully to, and respecting, the views of others.”
The EHE IDARE committee is interested in performing outreach and volunteer activities in Baltimore City, and we would like you to join us! Hopkins is launching a $6 million Innovation Fund for Community Safety. We would like to brainstorm on projects utilizing these funds to benefit the community.
