General Meeting – Thursday, April 21, 7 PM | In Person and via Zoom | Susan Howard, Victoria Women’s Transition House

Susan is honoured to work with the incredible team at Victoria Women’s Transition House (VWTH) in support of women and children fleeing intimate partner violence and abuse. Trained as a classical ballet dancer in the professional school at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Susan turned her passion for the arts to non-profit income development and has more than 20 years non-profit leadership experience with diverse organizations in communities across Canada in fund and community development, marketing, communications and board and executive management. A graduate of SFU with a degree in business and liberal studies, she has a particular interest in integrated fund development and communications programs. When not working, Susan enjoys yoga, fitness, reading, cooking and attending performances and concerts. In addition to her work with VWTH, Susan is President of the Board of Directors for Dance Victoria, and consults on a project basis for BC non-profit organizations.

Susan will provide an overview of the Victoria Women’s Transition House shelter, programs and services as well as some of the issues surrounding gender based violence.
