Name pronunciation

London M Skiles (they/them) is a fierce accessibility and disability rights advocate whose work focuses on how organizations create space for individuals to be their authentic selves. They help identify and remove barriers to inclusion and reimagine workplaces that value the contributions of all members.

 

 

London’s expertise is in instructional design and adult learning and training. They draw from their experiences working in K-12 and Higher Education institutions, corporate and small business, and non-profit organizations in both the United States and Europe, to deliver culturally intelligent training that answers, "What's next?” What is the next step for me, for my team, for my organization?

 

 

As a transmasculine nonbinary individual and autistic who was born and raised in a small city on the Tennessee River, London views identity as both simple and complex — simply defined but complexly layered. Creating truly accessible spaces begins with engaging in the self-work of exploring our own intersectional identities and extends to elevating and honoring the intersectional identities of others. These affirming spaces become possible when we celebrate the diversity of our lived experiences.

 

 

In their free time, London nurtures their nervous system by spending time with family, training as a “for fun” triathlete, and creating music in their home office/budding studio. They live with their wife and 3 rescue animals: a black cat, a former street puppy turned house hippo, and a blind-one-eyed, mostly deaf, albino senior dog.
