|The DiaTribe Foundation|
|Organizational Overview: One in 7 adults in the United States already has diabetes and that number is growing, nationally and globally; it is expected that 1 in 3 adults in the US will be diagnosed with diabetes by 2050 and that 642 million adults worldwide will have diabetes by 2040. Because there is no single solution to the diabetes epidemic, The diaTribe Foundation utilizes multiple strategies to change the dialogue about diabetes, including improving the lives of people affected by diabetes and prediabetes through education, advocating for action, and convening multiple stakeholders to exchange ideas and work together to address this crisis. A growing national nonprofit organization, we are creating a political and cultural shift in which reducing the burdens of diabetes, or eliminating the disease entirely, becomes a priority for diverse stakeholders including industry, healthcare providers, government, nonprofits, and patients.
Founded in 2013 by renowned diabetes advocate Kelly Close as an extension of her work in the field, our Foundation reaches over a million and a half people every year with the diaTribe.org publication, through which we are educating and supporting patients and the people who care about them to live happier, healthier, and more hopeful lives. In addition, we are influential advocates, bringing the patient voice to the Food and Drug Administration and policy makers nationally. Finally, as a highly networked and deeply respected organization, we convene the brightest minds across sectors to solve this epidemic. Please visit www.diatribe.org/foundation to learn more.
As the organization continues to grow and identify new opportunities for impact, we are seeking a Managing Director to play a critical role in leading the organization. As a partner to founder Kelly Close and the Board and staff, the Managing Director will provide internal leadership and management for the organization in order to leverage Kelly’s role as a national spokesperson for diabetes action and lead fundraiser for the organization. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work in partnership with a passionate and dedicated entrepreneur to grow a small but high-powered organization into the leading organization in a critical public health arena.
The Managing Director will have overall responsibility for the success of the organization, building on a strong organizational foundation and utilizing an amazingly talented team to meet ambitious goals. Reporting to Founder Kelly Close, the Managing Director will oversee all financial, operational, and programmatic aspects of the organization and will collaborate with the Founder and Board on strategy, fundraising, and governance. As a fast-growing patient-oriented organization, we are looking for a Managing Director who can hit the ground running, implement efficient and effective systems to optimize and leverage the team’s time, and set priorities within a dynamic and quickly evolving environment.
