Women in Print Alliance: Celebrating Progress and Inspiring Growth

During the month of March, the Women in Print Alliance continues its ongoing mission to attract, advance, and advocate for women in the print industry while also taking a moment to reflect on the lessons learned from past women leaders in the print community.

Follow #WomenMakingPrintHistory on LinkedIn to recognize and learn from the contributions of women to the printing industry through a month-long social media campaign. Women in Print Alliance aims to use its LinkedIn channel as a platform for women leaders, educators, innovators, and rising stars to exchange dialogue and engage with their peers. Additionally, the popular Women in Print Alliance newsletter serves to educate and inspire women in the industry, providing valuable insights and resources for women at all stages of their careers.

In 2024, Women in Print Alliance will expand opportunities for women in the industry to connect, including at the annual Women in Print Alliance Luncheon at the PRINTING United Expo. This year’s luncheon, scheduled for September 11 in Las Vegas, is expected to be another sell-out event.

Looking ahead, Women in Print Alliance plans to introduce a new membership option for individual women and companies to deepen their commitment to and elevate their experiences within the Alliance. This new membership will offer a range of virtual and in-person benefits, with programming focused on career development, executive leadership, and work-life balance. Stay updated by following Women in Print Alliance on LinkedIn or subscribing to the newsletter.

Lisbeth Lyons Black, director of Women in Print Alliance, emphasizes the living history of women in print and the desire among women across the industry to share knowledge and experiences. “There’s a sense of pride in what women have pioneered and accomplished in print,” says Black. “The month of March is a wonderful time to honor those strides while also focusing on growing the presence and impact of women throughout the industry.”
