Topic: “Be a Little Crazy: Career Risks Worth Taking”
Career paths for development professionals are often clearly laid out. We move from entry level to management jobs, from smaller programs to organizations with greater scale and complexity. But what happens when an opportunity comes along that invites us off our path? That involves risks some tell us are crazy to take? How do we best assess how to use our own unique strengths for personal and professional growth?
Reflecting on more than three decades of work in philanthropy, Dyan Sublett offers lessons learned with purpose–intentional “craziness”–as well as valuable tips on how to assess career moves worth taking. Her leadership in launching the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital in South Los Angeles will provide encouraging stories for everyone in healthcare today.
Dyan Sublett brings a background of over thirty years in philanthropic work throughout greater Los Angeles to her current position as President of the MLK Community Health Foundation, providing philanthropic support for the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital and the community it serves. As the organization’s first executive in 2012, she was responsible for developing the Foundation’s board, establishing communication strategies, donor base and infrastructure, and integrating vision and strategy with hospital leadership. Successes to date include over $20 million in funds raised for capital projects and community programs.
