At Simmons & Simmons, Fiona launched and co-chairs Emerge, the firm’s inaugural BAME network, and has recently introduced a mentoring program across all levels of the firm. The network was established as a result of discussions with an advisory board on the development of a BAME action plan, based on the principles of the Race at Work Charter, with Fiona acting as a partner sponsor and spokesperson for BAME inclusion. Fiona works closely with social mobility charity, The Brokerage, where she has previously served as a Trustee. She has worked with several client organizations advising on issues of culture and D&I. She also mentors BAME women in the legal profession.
