Chronically Capable Featured In A LinkedIn Commercial
LinkedIn just launched their new global Brand campaign for Sales Navigator. You may see some familiar faces 😉
The Chronically Capable team has been full of emotions seeing this video. Why? The story, emotions, and connection that you see here is 100% authentic. This is why Chronically Capable exists.
Our founder reached out to Pete Lawson, VP of Talent Acquisition at Postmates last Spring. A day later, she received a response that she could never have expected. Pete’s daughter also lives with a chronic health condition and he too saw the need for inclusive workplaces. He was touched by our story and determined to help our community access work opportunities.
Flash forward eight months, Postmates was a client of Chronically Capable and our founder Hannah was on a plane headed to San Francisco to film this with commercial Pete.
While we are overwhelmed by the response to this video, we want to reiterate why Chronically Capable matters to us. This company was founded by someone living with a chronic illness. Our founder’s early career was derailed by Lyme disease, and she’s on a mission to change the workplace for good. We hope that through Chronically Capable’s ambitions, nobody will ever have to choose between their health and career again.
Thank you to LinkedIn for sharing our story on a global scale and including us in this campaign. Your platform has helped us grow Chronically Capable day by day through meaningful connections. And thank you to our job seekers and employer partners for showing us just how powerful an inclusive community can be.
We are beyond grateful for your support and can't wait for the world to see this. #ChronicallyGrateful
If you want to be the best employee that you can be, you have to know your strengths. It is as simple as that, whether you are disabled or able-bodied. In the case of being disabled, I have found for myself that it can be hard to know how I benefit a workplace when I do not feel like I fit the general mold for what makes a good employee.
In 2016, I visited a friend in California and came across cannabidiol—generally referred to as CBD. Desperate to alleviate my pain, I decided to try it out.
As we celebrate Black History Month, which takes place every February, we’d like to both call attention to and celebrate the important presence of Black Americans in the United States.
Now more than ever, public trust and perception of companies depend on their commitment to Diversity and Inclusion (D&I). Although huge progress has been made towards equality across boundaries of gender, race and sexual orientation, one aspect of D&I is neglected way too often. That is disability.
We sat down with leadership at KeepTruckin, a Chronically Capable partner, to find out what makes their workplace inclusive for chronically ill and disabled employees.

Internships are crucial for gaining the necessary skills and experience to embark on your professional journey. Not only are internships a key milestone during college, but they also represent a unique opportunity to gain experience when changing careers or reentering the workforce.
We spoke with Lucia Romano, a supervising attorney of the Employment Voting and Access Team (EVA), Client Assistance Program, and a team focused on employment at Disability Rights Texas.
