SGIA, Big Picture explore role of women in the industry
The Women in Print Alliance, formed by SGIA (Fairfax, VA), is conducting an industry-wide survey, and hosting a networking breakfast and panel discussion at the SGIA Expo in New Orleans in October, to explore women's roles in the printing industry. The Women in Print Alliance’s focus is on attracting, retaining and advancing women in the printing workforce. The Alliance will share the results with the public during its breakfast (October 11, 7:30–9 a.m.) at the SGIA Expo.
The breakfast will also feature keynote speaker Fawn Germer, author of “Work-Life Reset” which discusses how to reboot work-life balance and live a more meaningful, productive life without regrets. Germer is internationally known for her work on leadership and performance dynamics, and is an expert on change and viability, showing how to convert the stress of a change-driven world into an opportunity to innovate and transform.
Germer will also facilitate Big Picture magazine’s Women in Print Award panel discussion (October 11, 2:30 p.m.), recognizing the trailblazing efforts of women in print. The 2017 honorees will discuss the role of women in today’s print industry as well as unique traits and experiences that make this group exemplary. (Full disclosure: Signs of the Times Editor-in-Chief Robin Donovan is a member of the Alliance's advisory board, and Big Picture is a sister publication under the umbrella of Cincinnati-based ST Media Group.)
The Women in Print survey is available online, and all women in printing are encouraged to complete it. For more information about the Women in Print Alliance’s activities at the SGIA Expo, visit sgiaexpo.org.
