Susan Colbert Wright
I am retired from a long career at Ontario Hydro/Hydro One. Over the past 30 years I have been involved in dance in different capacities. My daughters received training in the dance studio world (so yes – I used to be a “dance mom” ! LOL) but my commitment has gone beyond that in the last 10 years. I have an Honours BSc from the University of Toronto in Mathematical and Computer Sciences and I currently sit on the Boards of two non-profit arts organizations, TOES for Dance and ProArteDanza.
Thoughts About Art and Community
I enthusiastically support the Toronto dance community and beyond and voluntarily contribute my time and effort in ways ranging from applying my information management experience to governance in the arts sector, sharing knowledge about resources for artists, and organizationally assisting independent collectives and individuals.
My non-artistic background has been useful in the non-profit sector and I have developed a particular interest in governance in the arts. I have previous non-profit and Board of Director experience from my work on a successful business plan and subsequent implementation of a workplace childcare centre at Ontario Hydro.
