Welcome, Vicki Stroich!
Please join us in welcoming Vicki Stroich to the Alberta Ecotrust team in the new role of Partner and Community Engagement Director.
Vicki is a respected nonprofit leader and comes to us most recently from Alberta Theatre Projects where she was Executive Director from 2013 to 2018 and served in several capacities for 12 years prior to that. She believes in the creative power of authentic collaboration and has honed her skills in community engagement through roles at the Banff Centre, Creative Calgary, and the Trico Changemaker Studio and Calgary Arts Development’s Artist as Changemaker Program.
Vicki is passionate about the environment, in part from her experience as a surfer and concern about the world’s oceans. As an experienced dramaturg (you might have to look that up!), Vicki’s honest and thoughtful curiosity about our work, our community and our stories is also providing a new analytical lens to our relationships with partners, grantees, volunteers and colleagues in all sectors.
“It is energizing and exciting to use my experience as a community builder and an artist to help build greater connection and deeper relationships between Albertans working together to ensure healthy ecosystems for our communities. I am so glad to join such a forward thinking team and am looking forward to engaging with Alberta Ecotrust’s partners and supporters.” Vicki says.
With Vicki on our team, we are excited to implement an innovative engagement and partnership strategy that allows more people to actively participate in the creative and critical work we do at Alberta Ecotrust. We can’t wait for you to meet Vicki!
