IDARE Commitment

IH-IDARE Working and Steering Groups are committed to elevating and promoting a culture that supports inclusion, diversity, anti-racism, equity, and decolonization within the Department of International Health through ensuring a culture of IDARE is woven into all education, research, policy, practice, and procedural initiatives within the Department. We are inclusive of the Black community, Indigenous peoples, People of Color (BIPOC), sexual and gender minorities, and people with disabilities.


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. The Office of IDARE has developed an IDARE Action Plan, which complements the framework and eight priorities that aim to address racism and build an anti-racist culture within our School community.
