Amy Campo McEvoy

Senior Network Manager, The Girls' Network

“I work for The Girls’ Network, a charity that aims to inspire and empower girls from less advantaged communities by connecting them to a female mentor for a year and to a network of professional role models for life . My role consists of expanding the charity across Liverpool City Region, where, since we launched a year and a half ago, we have worked with over 160 girls who have met professionals from a huge range of sectors and engaged in exciting opportunities. Since I came to Liverpool for the role, I have been inspired every day by the girls and women in the city, and I thrive off the success stories in our network. Prior to this role, I studied International Relations and French at Durham for 4 years. In this time, I was involved in community projects concerning youth participation in European politics, international student engagement and intergenerational befriending. I also spent time in Burkina Faso working with a local organisation on the rights of people with disabilities, and in Brussels being part of the International Juvenile Justice Observatory, promoting the rights of young people in conflict with the law.”
