I am a T1D! I wear a CGM using the Medtronic 670G system. CGM was a life saver for me in PA! It was tough in busy season, but I would tell me teams up front that Monday is sensor change night and I need to leave on time / cannot work when recovering from the change. I had a few hypos along the way too, and I was always the person initiating the dinner conversation 😜 Now I’m in corporate I’m finding the routine is helping my BGs to be more stable. I’m also finding time to go to the gym which helps. My PA team were pretty great about my diabetes. My career coach knew about my health and my pump certainly makes itself known when it alarms me for bad sugars, however I found my team were always supportive and it opened a few cool doors like joining the EY ability network and working on some NFP / health clients. My advice would be HEALTH FIRST, work second. NEVER apologize for being a diabetic/eating/hypoing. You bring your WHOLE SELF to work, diabetes and all, and it’s okay to take the time to manage your health. Good luck OP, glad to hear about more diabetics who are striving for excellence and breaking down barriers!

Not in big 4, but I was diagnosed with type 1 at 10 years old. I use Medtronica insulin pump with constant glucose monitoring.

Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA

The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

Anyone else tired of the assumption that because you’re a partner you have to think a certain way and believe certain things. I’m talking about wokeness, work from home, and the recent ever constant pushing of the needle to the left or risk getting “cancelled”. I’m fairly liberal politically so for me to be saying this I think may say something for the current climate. I should be able to hold and express my own opinions without being quashed because I’m not “woke” enough.

Question about mentorship: in formal mentorship relationships (for ex.

If I’m facing a particular issue while working with another member of our team, or I think my bonus needs to be extra good this year, are those topics that would be appropriate to discuss?
