This week, we’re thinking about careers like recipes. And it’s not just because we’re talking to Dawn Davis, the editor-in-chief of “Bon Appétit.” For Dawn, every experience she had – from working in finance to founding her own publishing imprint – was an essential ingredient that prepared her to run the famous food mag. And this week, we’re talking to Dawn about how to experiment with your own career recipe.

In this episode, Dawn shares:

  • How she made the decision to leave finance
  • Why she left an imprint she started to work for a legacy brand
  • How she gives feedback to her authors and writers
  • How she is building a safe and inclusive work culture at “Bon Appétit”
