Leadership and Education in Academic Research and Networking for Enhancing Diversity

Welcome to the Leadership and Education in Academic Research and Networking for Enhancing Diversity (LEARNED) program page. The LEARNED program is a new initiative within the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) under the aegis of the Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. With initial funding from the PhD Professional Development Innovation Initiative of the Johns Hopkins University Provost Office, this program fosters community and belonging among historically underrepresented PhD students and postdoctoral fellows across all JHSPH academic departments and research centers through facilitating networking and enhancing professional development. The Program also aims to improve retention and success of underrepresented PhD students and postdoctoral fellows both at the Bloomberg School and in the public health workforce.
