The daily decisions of Johns Hopkins’ staff, faculty, and students drive our success on our economic inclusion goals. You can support local purchasing and hiring:
- For every item you purchase, look for a local vendor first
- Use the vendor guide to discover local businesses
- Encourage people you know in the city to apply for open positions at Johns Hopkins
- If you are a hiring manager, ask your recruiter to make sure local candidates are in your review pool
