Dr Grace Mansah-Owusu
Strategy and Innovation Director
"The BiPP Network are a thoughtful and psychologically minded group of individuals who work hard to bring a wide range of timely, interesting and accessible learning events and reflective spaces to the African and Caribbean therapist community."
— Dr Roberta Babb (Registered Clinical Psychologist and Registered Forensic Psychodynamic Psychotherapist)
Grace is an Organisational Psychologist who completed her MSc in Occupational Psychology at the University of Nottingham. Grace subsequently completed a PhD in Management Studies from Brunel University and is currently undertaking a PG Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London. Grace has worked with a variety of organisations across research, academia and human resources, although her current project is focused in talent management where she helps people to be the best they can be within the workplace. Grace’s wealth of experience and knowledge in organisational and occupational psychology make her well-suited to the position of Strategy and Innovation Director within the BiPP Network.
Grace works to streamline the network’s processes, strategise new ideas and new ways of working for the BiPP Network. From her experience working in the team, Grace describes “the exciting energy that the BiPP Network exudes, the team are all motivated, driven and great to be around”. A key driving force for Grace to be involved with the BiPP Network, is that from her experience, she is aware that Psychology has a distinct and worrying lack of diversity and wants to be part of something that addresses that, in a positive way. Grace really enjoys the breadth of events the Network puts on and especially liked the Race and Racism series in collaboration with the Centre of pan African thought as it was extremely ground-breaking and accessible.
