Reema Patel

Programme Manager (Citizens' Economic Council)

Reema Patel is Programme Manager for the RSA’s Citizens Economic Council, tasked with engaging members of the public in a deliberative and informed conversation about the future of an economy.

She joins the RSA from participation and democracy think-tank Involve, where she primarily worked on the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills-funded public engagement programme Sciencewise. 

Reema ran Sciencewise’s capacity building and training programme for policymakers across a breadth of government departments and non departmental public bodies (NDPBs). She was also a key member of the development team for the Sciencewise Sounding Board, a technology product that supports policymakers to access deliberation at low cost and speed online; and has delivered engagement processes with the Department for Education (on education data), with the Committee for Climate Change (on low carbon heat technology), as well as with the Environment Agency (on onshore oil & gas exploration).

She is a local councillor, a founding trustee of a community run library, and a keen runner.
