Level Up was founded in 2016 by a group of experienced feminist campaigners from SumOfUs, 38 Degrees, AllOut, 350.org and Greenpeace. We have two employees:
Carys joined Level Up from SumOfUs, where she was global Communications Director. Carys is a former Head of Communications at the New Economics Foundation and a former adviser to Labour MP Lisa Nandy. She co-founded istreetwatch.co.uk to track the rise racist and xenophobic street harassment in the wake of the EU referendum. Carys was recently named one of InStyle magazine’s Future 15. She is a Trustee of the End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW).
Bryony joined Level Up from 38 Degrees where she was responsible for 38 Degrees’ offline action team, getting a quarter of a million people from all walks of life involved in activism and campaigns training. Since 2013, she has also helped to build an award-winning social enterprise Mazi Mas, which provides training and employment to support women in the food industry, specifically chefs from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
