Women in Print Alliance: Reflecting on the Past While Moving Forward

Throughout the month of March, Women in Print Alliance continues its year-round mission of attracting, advancing, and advocating for women in the print industry – while also taking a moment to reflect on past lessons from women leaders in the print community.On LinkedIn, follow #WomenMakingPrintHistory to recognize and learn from the contribution of women to the printing industry through a month-long social media campaign on LinkedIn. Women in Print Alliance is excited for its LinkedIn channel to serve as a platform for women leaders, educators, innovators, and rising stars to exchange dialogue and engage with their peers. The popular Women in Print Alliance newsletter also serves to educate and inspire women in the industry. This free publication is open to all women working in print at any role or stage of their careers.

In 2024, Women in Print Alliance will offer even more ways for women in the industry to connect, including at the annual Women in Print Alliance Luncheon at PRINTING United Expo. This year’s luncheon will be held on September 11 in Las Vegas where another sell-out event is expected.

Also on the horizon is a brand new membership opportunity for individual women and for companies to deepen their commitment to, and elevate, their experiences in Women in Print Alliance. The new, paid membership option will include a mix of virtual and in-person benefits, with programming focused on topics like career development, executive leadership, and work-life balance. Follow Women in Print Alliance on LinkedIn or subscribe to the newsletter to learn more and be the first to know when the new membership opportunities launch.

“What’s exciting about the history of women in print is that it’s truly a ‘living history,’” says Lisbeth Lyons Black, director, Women in Print Alliance. “There’s a genuine desire I observe daily by women up and down the career ladder and across the spectrum of the printing industry to share information, lessons, and experiences from their personal career journeys with one another.

“There’s a sense of pride in what women have pioneered and accomplished in print – and the month of March is a wonderful time to honor those strides, while at the same time there’s a real motivation to grow the presence and impact of women throughout the industry. Women in the print community want to learn from the past – and then knock the future out of the park.”
