This includes milestone publications such as Decade of Decline and Poverty by Postal Code. She has been in the foreground of our innovative social investment strategies – it is her team’s research that revealed the community hubs and neighbourhood engagement as being essential cornerstones to neighbourhood revitalization. Susan engages stakeholders both internally and externally and continually evolves her approach to managing partnerships.
