Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Summit 2021

How do you build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture and workplace? How do you embrace diversity as a powerful force for good? At Carey Business School, we know that it’s our differences that make us a stronger, more vibrant community. And diverse perspectives are what build resilient, innovative businesses.

Everyone in the Johns Hopkins community is invited to join us for the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Summit. We will reflect on Johns Hopkins’ approach to diversity and our school’s opportunities for growth, a CEO roundtable of lessons learned from other organizations, an employee resource panel including a networking session for students, and the launch of the Johns Hopkins Leadership Development Program, a new certificate for BIPOC managers.
