2019-2022 Progress

From the beginning of the HopkinsLocal initiative, Johns Hopkins has committed to setting measurable goals and being transparent about its progress. 

In the second iteration of HopkinsLocal, the university and health system:

  • Continued to work with contractors that were minority-owned, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises. In FY2022, Johns Hopkins’ commitment to those contractors and subcontractors was 17% of its addressable spending, or $144.6 million.
  • Hired 2,174 people who live in focus area Baltimore City ZIP codes for a set of targeted positions.
  • Spent $53.2 million more in targeted categories than if spending had remained at the 2018 baseline level.
  • Helped an additional 28 small, local, minority-owned, women-owned, or disadvantaged businesses in the design and construction industries expand their skills and connections through the BLocal BUILD College. In FY19, the BUILD College standing program changed from twice a year to a one-year offering, allowing us to also provide offerings for the growing alumni pool.
  • Hired 1,131 justice-involved individuals.

During FY19, Johns Hopkins evaluated the first three years of the program and worked with stakeholders within the institutions and in the community to identify the next set of goals, to begin in FY20. HopkinsLocal efforts continued during that year, and the results are available in the FY19 Progress at a Glance document.

Results from FY2019 to FY2022 years of HopkinsLocal in comparison to the second iteration of goals are available in the FY22 Progress at a Glance document.
