ReMEDI project: reverse mentoring and organisational change

Stacy Johnson, Associate Professor, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, MBE for services to healthcare and Higher Education, December 2018.

Associate Professor Johnson researches diversity, leadership & entrepreneurship in nursing and healthcare and is an advisor and speaker on healthcare and Higher Education equality, diversity and inclusion. Since 2012, she has been advising England's Chief Nurse on matters affecting BAME patients and staff as a member of the Chief Nursing Officer's BAME Advisory Group. She has created a Reverse Mentoring framework for inclusion across all protected characteristics and with the socio-economically deprived groups, with the potential to bring organisational change. In the ReMEDI Project, BAME staff and students reverse mentor senior staff in the NHS and Universities improving inclusion and organisational culture. She is also designing tools and systems for evaluation of EDI that are sector-specific including for the NHS which does not currently evaluate EDI frameworks. The EDI know-how that she has developed is now being commercialised through her applied research informed consultancy work, impacting policies on organisational culture.
