Taking place on 22 October, Girls Who Print Day 2020 will be a virtual event and super-sized. The event will include the presentation of the Girlie Award and the annual Women in Leadership panel, which has become the cornerstone of the event.
The seventh recipient of the award will be in esteemed company, joining previous winners Pat McGrew, Cary Sherburn, Deborah Corn, Trish Witkowski, Jules Van Sant and Sabine Geldermann. Launched in 2012, Girls Who Print Day is an annual celebration of the industry’s largest professional network of women in the print and the graphic communications field. The event provides a platform for conversations and education that foster career and business success from current, and future female leaders in the industry.
Deborah Corn, Principal at Print Media Centr, Founder of International Print Day and Girl #1 at Girls Who Print, said, ‘Despite these challenging times, there is a trifecta of ‘printspiration’ for print lovers to look forward to in October. The International Print Day (21 October) theme of #ElevatePrint is especially poignant and hopefully punctuates that getting back to ‘normal’ shouldn’t be the goal of the industry. Girls Who Print Day follows on the 22nd with the support of more than 60 industry partners and the PRINTING United Digital Experience gets underway on October 26th. It is so important that we keep participating in initiatives that are bringing us together – even through a screen. Together, we are better; together, we find a way to make it happen; together, we ‘Print Long and Prosper’.’
