The new trustees, who were confirmed at the board meeting on Tuesday 31 October, are:

Jonathan Andrews

Jonathan is a trainee solicitor at Reed Smith, an international law firm with offices across the US, Europe and Asia. Jonathan is a determined advocate for autistic representation and social mobility in the workplace.

Catherine Dixon

Stonewall Chair Jan Gooding said: 

‘We’re delighted to have recruited a group of new trustees who bring a range of specialisms, skills and experience to the board. 

‘We know that we have some big challenges ahead of us as we approach the reform of the Gender Recognition Act, and must ensure that progress made on LGBT rights doesn’t slip as we approach Brexit. The expertise and guidance of our new board members will be vital as we continue to grow both the depth and reach of Stonewall’s work.’
