'The vice president academic and provost at Emily Carr University of Art + Design has deep ties with the Vancouver arts community, having worked with such organizations as Vancouver Opera, TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival Society, and the Vancouver Recital Society. An expert in typography, some of her stamp designs are in Canada's National Archives, including one recognizing the formation of Nunavut. Zabolotney was appointed to her position less than a year ago but has been with the institution since 2001 in a variety of roles, including as dean of design and dynamic media and dean of graduate studies. As Emily Carr prepares to move to its new campus on Great Northern Way, her responsibilities, as well as her profile, are certain to increase.'
The list was prepared in advance of International Women's Day, which is celebrated around the world on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.
