In 2001, Susman hosted The Myth of Superwoman, a conference that focused on the balancing act women face in their personal and career lives. Widespread interest in this issue led her to produce and host Superwoman Central, a public television show that aired on Houston PBS in 2005.
In 2007, Susman created and produced Balancing Your Life, a program broadcast nationally on PBS that addressed the challenges of managing career and family. Filmed on location throughout the country, the program featured interviews with prominent and professionally diverse guests, including Chris Evert, Frances Beinecke, Nell Merlino, Janet Gurwitch, Cindy Pawlcyn, Consuelo Mack, Eileen Collins, Sue Naegle, Kuki Gallman, Kavita Ramdas, Maria Blanco and Dana Buchman. Her interview with Rosanne Cash was nominated for a 2007 Lone Star EMMY Award for Outstanding Achievement Interview/Discussion.
Susman edited Danger Pay: Memoir of a Photojournalist in the Middle East, written by her late sister, Carol Spencer Mitchell (1954-2004). The memoir was published in November 2008 by University of Texas Press, and was selected by the 2009 University Press Books Committee as an outstanding-rated title essential to most public and secondary school libraries. Susman collaborated with museum curator Anne Wilkes Tucker to create the Carol Spencer Mitchell Photographic Archive, which consists of approximately 60,000 photos and is housed at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
Susman has served on the Boards of Annie’s List, National Jewish Democratic Council, American Leadership Forum in Houston, Recipe for Success, the Texas Tribune, the Democracy Alliance, and the Blanton Museum of Art. She has been an Advisory Council Member of the United States Public Service Academy and the University of Houston Friends of Women’s Studies and serves on the National Councils of the Aspen Art Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.
In 2013, Susman co-founded The Texas Future Project, a fund-raising corporation that focuses on policy as well as politics. A Texas art collector and philanthropist, Susman contributed $100,000 to the super PAC supporting candidate Obama and indicated an interest in the directorship of the Art In Embassies Program. During his presidential campaign, Susman raised $1.1 million for Obama, more than any other woman in Texas.
During her tenure as director at Art In Embassies, Susman focused on developing innovative new partnerships in both the public and private sectors expanding the profile, collection, and outreach efforts; bringing artists to South Africa, Rome, Berlin, London, Bern, Doha and The Hague, among others; forming partnerships with the Institute of American Indian Arts to create a portfolio of work for new American Embassies; and furthering Ambassadors’ outreach in their respective host country communities.
She also expanded the program by partnering with Ambassador Patrick Gaspard to bring U.S. artists to South Africa, fulfilling the program’s mission to create international dialogue and transform lives through art. This relationship led to an opportunity for Ambassador Gaspard to participate with other ambassadors and artists in a program at the Aspen Institute titled Cultural Diplomacy: Why Art Matters, which Susman facilitated.
From 2011-2012, Susman served on the President’s Advisory Committee on the Arts for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
