Glitch is an award-winning UK charity that is working to end online abuse – particularly against women and marginalised people. We were founded in 2017 by then local politician, Seyi Akiwowo, after she received a flood of abuse when a video of her speech at the European Parliament went viral. Through training, research, workshops and programmes, we're building an online world that is safer for all.
Prior to joining Glitch, Gwen worked in education – first as a Library Assistant then as an English teacher in Vietnam, where she developed training sessions for new teachers, teaching assistants and other staff. She recently completed an MA in Environment, Development and Policy, which saw her explore how intersectional identities are impacted by sustainable development programmes. Gwen is passionate about using education as a way to make change, and has an interest in social and environmental justice.
