I am an ambassador for mental illness in the workplace.
I work as a manager in consulting and talk from my experiences as a chronically ill person on the compatibility of illness and career.

I have had a mental illness since adolescence and have been diagnosed with multiple disorder symptoms for over 10 years.
As a manager in the consulting industry, I am demanding more transparency in dealing with illnesses / disabilities including a holistic revolution of the very in consulting.

Emotions at work - between transparency and resilience
Compatibility of therapy and the work diary
Sustainable Consulting - The 4-day week as a self-experiment

I put pathogenesis and education on the Diversity & Inclusion on top management's agenda and speak about stigma, prejudice, paternalism, compassion and anger.
