Events and Alaveteli Partnership Manager

Gemma joined mySociety in February 2014, amidst much jubilation from colleagues who had been trying to fit mySociety’s ever-expanding events organisation into their own working days.

Gemma now organises everything from our public meet-ups to conferences (the ones we attend and the ones we organise or speak at). She books plane tickets for those venturing abroad, and makes sure they have a comfortable bed waiting for them at the other end – not to mention the all-important wifi.

She also works with partners who use or are interested in using our Alaveteli software; project managing new installs and helping sites become as impactful as possible. If you have any questions about setting up an Alaveteli instance, do get in touch with her.

Before coming to mySociety, Gemma worked for an international human rights organisation and in her spare time, she enjoys speaking Spanish and watching Spanish language films, organising charity fundraising events, cooking, immersive theatre and cycling.

Gemma is fluent in: French and Spanish (well, nearly! She does have a degree in it after all)
