Eve is a director and co-founder at Happen Together CIC. She is passionate about people, community and equality. Eve left her career as a solicitor to focus on working with people to help them make the change they want to see in their own lives, communities, workplaces and in society as a whole. These values and the tenet ‘nothing about us without us’ have been central to her work, as a practicing solicitor for 13 years (specialising in public law and human rights) and across the array of community-based projects she now works on through her community interest company. Her current projects include:
- Co-founder of DivaManc – growing women’s voice, participation, influence and power in Greater Manchester and the devolution process
- Co-lead for ‘Making Devolution Work for Women’ project with Fawcett Society.
- Co-lead of SomeWomen – a ‘centenary cities’ project led by the Pankhurst Centre, Manchester – the campaign for voice and vote of past, present and future.
- Co-lead for Parliament Project North – supporting women to run for political office – delivering workshops, webinars and peer coaching circles.
