Rosie will focus on 100 years of Gingerbread; what progress has been made for single parent families; what the need is now and what more needs to be done.
Rosie Ferguson is passionate about working with and for single parents to ensure Gingerbread is doing the best job it can to support and champion the two million diverse single parent families across England and Wales. The foundation records of Gingerbread, formerly the National Council for the Unmarried Mother and her Child, are held in The Women's Library Collection at LSE and some archive material will be available to view as part of this event.
Rosie Ferguson has been Chief Executive of Gingerbread since February 2017. Rosie started out in the youth sector, supporting young people to develop leadership roles in their communities and went on to be Chief Executive of London Youth from 2012 to 2016. Rosie was a Commissioner on the London Fairness Commission and is a Trustee of Centre for London.
The British Library of Political and Economic Science was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
