Jemma Tracey


Position: digital media officer


Experience: After graduating with a BA in Social Sciences in 2011, I left Scotland to spend eighteen months working in New Delhi for a family planning association. The open and sex-positive work atmosphere was part of shaping my decision to return to academia, where I attained an MSc in Sociology with a specific focus on Gender and Sexuality. I started with the Young Women’s Movement in 2015 as an intern, assisting with events and social media. I wanted to use my degree and past experience in communications roles, so it’s a perfect match – and very exciting for me to work in such a digital environment! My role covers all things digital, from contributing to the daily management of our social media and website, to coordinating our new leadership programme Young Women Lead. For me this role is all about reaching out to young women in Scotland, and offering a platform for their voices.
