Susannah Gray is a Strategic Communications Expert and Project Coordinator with a background in Internet governance and multi-stakeholder, community-driven communication and PR.

She firmly believes that the Internet can empower individuals and communities to change their circumstances through open innovation and access to information and collaborates with people and organisations working to make the world a better place on – and off – line.

Susannah has spent the last 15 years promoting and protecting the concept of an open, inclusive and sustainable Internet as part of the Internet technical community and has a deep understanding of the Internet ecosystem, Internet technologies and the issues affecting the Internet’s end users.

Over the years, she has worked for many Internet industry organizations including ICANN, the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) – AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, RIPE NCC and the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) to name a few, and has collaborated on projects throughout Europe, North America and the Global South.

Susannah has been an individual ISOC member for many years and is committed to strengthening both the Chapter and Membership experience. She served as President of the San Francisco Bay Area ISOC Chapter from 2016 – 2018 and as Vice President in 2015. After serving her two-year term as a hands-on President, she stepped down from the Board and now works closely with the SF Bay Area Chapter as Board Advisor/ICANN Liaison.

In 2019, she was elected by the Chapters to serve on the Internet Society Chapter Advisory Council (ChAC) Steering Committee for a one-year term. She also serves on the IGF-USA Steering Committee and is part of the North American School of Internet Governance (NASIG) organisation team. She regularly participates in ICANN’s NARALO/At-Large community and in various RIR communities around the world. In 2017 she was selected to be an ISOC Ambassador to the IGF, an ICANN 63 Fellow and an ARIN 39 Fellow.

Having been away from her homeland for over half of her life, Susannah considers herself to be a global citizen and embraces the borderless opportunities that the Internet offers.

She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Business Administration from the University of Keele, England.
