HopkinsLocal is a firm commitment to leverage Johns Hopkins’ economic power to expand participation of local and minority-owned businesses in construction opportunities; increase our hiring of city residents, with a focus on neighborhoods in need of job opportunities; and enhance economic growth, employment, and investment in Baltimore through our purchasing activities.
Through HopkinsLocal, Johns Hopkins will build on our existing community partnerships, projects with city schools, and job training programs to sustain healthier, safer, and more vibrant communities.
We are proud to launch this new initiative to build a stronger Baltimore by promoting economic growth and employment opportunities. This joint effort will guide us to engage city residents when we build, hire, and buy, and help us encourage other employers to invest in Baltimore as well.
