Gribble's career included a range of other roles in the arts. She was a deputy chair of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and played significant roles with the Australia Council, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Circus Oz and She was also involved with Lonely Planet and Care Australia.

Mourning her death, wrote that Gribble 'was a creator. She inspired and indefatigably supported the people around her–family, friends, colleagues, authors, artists. She nurtured young talent and motivated old talent. She loved books, ideas, the idea of ideas and she loved being a publisher of Crikey.'
