Rowena Ironside, co-founder, NED and former Chair of Women on Boards UK, has joined the board of leading healthcare charity PSPA as their incoming Chair.
PSPA supports people living with rare brain diseases called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD).
After stepping down from the Chair role at Women on Boards last year, Rowena will lead the established Board of Trustees at PSPA.
“I am delighted to be joining the Board of PSPA as Chair. PSPA plays a hugely important role in the lives of everyone touched by PSP & CBD, both in the UK and more broadly through its connections to international organisations.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with everyone involved and contribute to the next stage of the charity’s development.”
The role at PSPA will build on her previous experience as the inaugural Chair of charity Compassion in Dying. She will bring her expertise across strategy, technology, organisational development and financial oversight, as well as in advancing diversity. The appointment adds to Rowena’s portfolio of board positions including WOB Global, Digital Catapult and The HealthCare Improvement Studies (THIS) Institute, Cambridge.
