Women in Print Alliance
Connecting and empowering women in the print community so they have every opportunity to excel. Through the support of the Women In Print Alliance™, PRINTING United Alliance creates opportunities for women in the printing industry to excel through connections, networking and content specifically for this rapidly growing group within the industry.
Women in Print Alliance feeds the community with content and resources for this very specialized and rapidly growing industry demographic. The Women In Print Alliance is a group of women employed by printer and supplier member companies that are dialed into the needs of women just like them from all industry segments of printing.
Overall Objective of the Women In Print Alliance™
The Women in Print Alliance was created with a singular purpose in mind: to mend the gender gap that still lingers in the industry today. While the industry itself has progressed—especially with the influx of female leaders and owners— there is still a marginal gap in the traditionally male printing industry. For many women—who find themselves on the cusp of embracing new careers in printing—the path in front of them can look daunting; if not a bit frustrating. And we, the Women in Print Alliance, want to stand as mentors and peers to every woman and man standing at the inception of their careers.
Our mission is simple: to attract, retain, and advance women within the printing and graphics industry through multiple forums; from mentoring, education, personal and professional development. Nonetheless, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Though
we primarily advocate and promote women in the industry—we also advocate for equal opportunities and resources; because to bridge gender-based issues and challenges, it’s a collective effort on everyone’s part. Therefore, our doors
are open to everyone—no matter what gender, race, or creed—in order to create a unified and inclusive environment that propels the standards for other industries.
Women in Print Alliance Blog
The Women in Print Alliance has curated the blog with content specifically for women in the industry. The group meets regularly to develop content and write posts that serve women in the printing industry based on popular industry concerns and current topics.
