Carol Cunningham


Position: glasgow centre coordinator


Experience: I manage the Glasgow Centre, which includes the things that people don’t ‘see’, like the development of strong working relationships with other organisations and ensuring that what we do is of a high standard. Born and raised in Glasgow with six brothers, my background is in the field of science, traditionally a male dominated environment. After raising my children, I worked as a volunteer running a junior football club that provides youth development opportunities and gained experience of every aspect of running a community organisation. I have two daughters and two granddaughters now and I don’t want the restrictions I faced because of my gender to be an issue for them. If I can be a part of changing things for their future, and the future of all girls and young women, I will be very happy!
