Chronic Illness, Entrepreneurship and Work with our Founder La’Kita Williams:
This week’s episode features an important conversation about chronic illness and work. Tune in as our founder, La’Kita, opens up about her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) diagnosis and how that’s changed her life as an entrepreneur.
La’Kita and Chloe also discuss creating a sustainability model for your business when you are a leader and have a chronic illness, having a solid support system in place, and things that employers might do to support employees with chronic illness. This is an issue really close to us at CoCreate Work, we would love to hear your thoughts, your experiences, and/or any questions you have on how to build an inclusive workplace for those with chronic illness and disability.
