For a stronger Baltimore
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.
Since the launch of our HopkinsLocal economic inclusion initiative in 2015, we have been committed to reporting our progress toward the goals we set: to spend more in Baltimore City and with women- and minority-owned businesses, and to create more job opportunities for city residents.
