S02 E05 – Living to Work and Working to Live

Listen

Imagine that you have a sudden illness and your entire life changes. What would happen with your job? 

On this episode, we hear a story mash up from Des Moines, Iowa: one told from the perspective of an employee whose son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, and the other from her supervisor who became one of her biggest supporters. 

We also sit down with Miriam Lewis, the chief diversity and inclusion officer for Principal Financial. 

Join J.R. and Kelsey as they discuss Living to Work and Working to Live.
