Ginger Wiegand

Trustee; Equality and Diversity lead

Ginger joined the Board of Trustees of C3SC in 2018.

I have over 10 years’ experience managing voluntary sector projects in Wales, having previously worked at Displaced People in Action and for Cardiff Third Sector Council on the East Cardiff Llanedeyrn Pentwyn Communities First programme.  I currently work for the Ethnic Minorities and Youth Support Team Wales (EYST Wales) as research and policy lead on the All Wales BAME Engagement Programme.

I trained in cultural anthropology at University of Washington (Seattle) and Syracuse University, where I received a Fulbright-Hays Fellowship to study dance in Accra, Ghana.

In my current role I have produced research reports on the state of racial equity in Wales, including “Racism, Race and Schools in Wales” and “Experiences of Belonging and Living in Wales.” I’ve also led the development and delivery of EYST’s “Routes to Public Life” mentoring programme.

Since lockdown began in March, I have led the team in establishing on online forum series investigating the impact of Covid 19 on ethnic minority people and communities in Wales and communicating that impact to Welsh Government and other public bodies.

In addition to being a trustee for C3SC I am a governor at Cathays High School.   Outside of work (and once the lockdown is over!) you might find me hanging on trapezes at No Fit State Circus.
