The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center’s Diversity Council has been named one of the top 25 diversity councils in the United States. It’s the second consecutive year Johns Hopkins Bayview has received the honor by the Association of Diversity Councils, improving its standing from the previous year to 13th this year.
“I am proud that the Diversity Council was honored at a national level. It reinforces that the work and impact of the council is meaningful and important,” says Richard Bennett, M.D., president of Johns Hopkins Bayview and co-chair of its Diversity Council. “It’s an honor to receive this award and be part of a group of well-respected companies who share a vision of diversity, inclusion, tolerance and civility.”
The 2012 Top 25 Diversity Council Honors Award™ recognizes groups that lead diversity processes in their organizations and demonstrate results in their workforce, workplace and marketplace.
“This honor results from a rigorous benchmarking process to evaluate the organization’s operational practices and establish that a commitment to diversity and inclusion is present throughout our campus,” said Janet J. Harding, coordinator of diversity and inclusion programs. “It also encourages us to develop processes and tools to monitor our own internal progress.”
Other diversity councils joining Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center on the list include AT&T, FedEx Freight, Hyatt Hotels and The Boeing Company.
