The Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy and Women in Foreign Policy are hosting our May career advice dinner with Lucy Wake!

This dinner will be particularly suited for people who are looking for advice on careers in the NGO sector or human rights advocacy.

Lucy is a proven advocate for human rights and continues this work in her role as Government and Political Relations Manager at Amnesty International UK (AIUK) where she has been for eight years.

In her current role Lucy works to influence decision makers in Westminster, Whitehall and the United Nations. Through the political relationships Lucy promotes and maintains with senior figures in these organisations, she aims to pursue positive change relating to AIUK’s campaigns and country concerns and to emphasise Amnesty’s role as a key source of information on the subject of human rights. 

Her previous experience demonstrates the significant impact she has had on issues of development and human rights. This includes working for Médecins Sans Frontières in Argentina, and Oxfam in Spain. She also worked for the Associate Parliamentary Group on Women, Peace and Security as a Political Advisor and as a board member for the End Violence Against Women Coalition. Other experience Lucy has had includes working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI), working with women with insecure immigration status and working on gender-based violence criteria in the UN Arms Trade Treaty.
