Reciprocal mentoring for inclusion

Reciprocal mentoring for inclusion

This free, facilitated programme creates powerful partnerships between executive boards and staff from underrepresented/marginalised groups working in mentoring pairs that are reciprocal in nature.

The programme provides opportunities for individuals from under-represented groups (BAME, gender, LGBTQ+ and staff with disabilities) across the NHS, to mentor senior NHS executives, creating a powerful alliance where knowledge and understanding of their lived experience is used to shift awareness and action at board level.

The Reciprocal Mentoring for Inclusion programme is based on reverse mentoring, with the addition of the relationship between the mentor and mentee being reciprocal in nature; enabling allies and equal partnerships designed to create systemic transformational change.
