Our Global Leaders
Over four days, global leaders are sharing publicly, many for the first time their real and raw experience of navigating their career while also living with disability / chronic illness. Guests include world renowned physician and triple amputee Dr BJ Miller (Co-Founder of Mettle Health, who features in Chris Hemsworth's Limitless series), Executives from the USA and Australia including Jenn Sharp (SEI Consulting), Antara Mascarenus (AEMO), as well as innovative entrepreneurs like Amina Altai, and Hannah Olson, Co-Founder of Disclo, ground-breaking HR software helping employees to safely disclose and ask for accommodations at work.
In these intimate one-on-one interviews they traverse a range of topics including how to have career confidence while living with a long term health condition, managing other people's expectations, sharing and disclosure plus how many of them believe chronic illness also paved the way for their own authentic and inclusive leadership.
