Iona is a Trustee of SIGNAL.
Iona says …
My son was diagnosed with autism in 2013 just before he turned 3. I remember how lonely and isolating it felt to receive the diagnosis and then simply be sent on my way. Joining SIGNAL was a life-saver for me. One divorce and a fair few grey hairs later, I still rely on the incredible support, information and understanding of the SIGNAL group to keep me on track.
In my professional life I am a solicitor, a coach and Head of Learning & Development in London for a global law firm. I am also a mental health first aider. I mentor and work on projects to increase the diversity of the legal profession and am particularly passionate about supporting and encouraging neurodiversity in the workplace.
