Our staff

Susan McKellar, Operations Manager

Susan's main role at the SWC is to be an ambassador promoting the work of the organisation. As Operations Manager, she will be working with the team, helping them to deliver events and ensure that the voices of women all over Scotland are represented in the reports which are produced. Her role is also to engage with key stakeholders, such as politicians and key decision makers, to support initiatives driven by the SWC.

She graduated from Glasgow University with an Honours degree in Physiology and sports science but changed her career from member relations manager in a gym to one representing parents due to her active role as a mother of a disabled child. She spent 5 years representing parents who did not have a voice and projected that at a national level with Parent Network Scotland. It was during this role that Susan found an interest in equality and inclusion and how it intersects with education and health services. She is the new Glasgow representative for the National Parent Forum for Scotland and helps parents raise issues to a national level with regards to education and parental engagement. She has a huge interest in trauma and mental health and is part of the cross-party group in prevention and healing of adverse childhood experiences.

Susan is a passionate activist on human and disability rights and believes in equality and inclusion for all. When she isn't working Susan can be found socialising with friends and family or climbing Munro's or some other adrenaline filled activity.

Jenna McGhie, Events and Policy Advisor

Jenna started with the SWC in February as a volunteer helping our small team with social media posts, events and overall administration of the office. Jenna became a member of staff in April 2021 and took up the role as Policy and Events officer.

Jenna has always had a passion for third sector and in her previous role she took the opportunity to volunteer as the Company Charity Co-ordinator this involved organising fundraising events, building relationships with charities and local communities, creating volunteer days for staff to then engage with these organisations. This voluntary role brought the responsibility of overseeing the social team who organise staff social events, enhanced health & well-being amongst staff and created a fuller benefit package.

Outside of work she has a love of being outdoors and in nature through travelling and her hobbies which include hillwalking and photography.

Eilidh Young, Events and Policy Advisor

Eilidh took the position of Events and Policy Officer in August 2022, after completing her Masters of Research in Applied Gender Studies (Research Methods) from the University of Strathclyde. Before this she attended the University of Stirling, where she studied Sociology and Criminology – and her interest in feminist theory and research methods began. She has also volunteered with the Young Women’s Movement Scotland since 2019, assisting with multiple Status of Young Women Reports and contributing to their blog.

As a young Scottish woman, she is passionate about ensuring young women’s voices are heard and included within policy and decision-making. She is also a great believer in an intersectional approach to feminist work, and therefore strives to be an advocate for marginalised voices – giving them the space they deserve.


Outside of work, she is an avid reader, particularly feminist non-fiction, and also loves film and TV.
