Women’s Print Mentoring Network

Girls Who Print (GWP) and Printing Industries of America (PIA) are pleased to announce the launch of their joint venture, the all-new Women's Print Mentoring Network. This collaborative effort aims to advance the profile of women in the graphic communications and printing industry through the creation of positive, meaningful mentoring relationships.

"Girls Who Print was founded on the cornerstones of community, empowerment, and mentorship" said Deborah Corn, principal at Print Media Centr and Girl #1 at Girls Who Print. "Combining our grassroots community building with the industry might of the Printing Industries of America means exponential growth of this network and more resources to help the women of print. We are so honored to work with PIA on this initiative." Kelly Mallozzi, principal at SuccessInPrint.net and Girl #2 at Girls Who Print, added, "We all do better when we all do better. I am thrilled to be a part of this mentoring network, and I fully expect to participate both AS a mentor and to reach out to the network when I need help."

"We have been working toward this launch for more than a year and we couldn't be more proud," said Adriane Harrison, Human Relations Director at Printing Industries of America and co-founder of the program. "To partner with Deborah and Kelly of Girls Who Print was our first and best match for the Mentoring Network. They bring an energy and vitality to the program that is a force to be reckoned with. It is our hope that through the WPMN we can improve career outcomes and increase engagement across the industry."

Amy Miller, CEO of Trinity Graphics, Inc. and Castle Press, an award-winning women-owned business in Anaheim, California, was excited to be among the first to join as a mentor for the network. "Empowered women empower women," said Miller. "Our industry is dependent on creating impactful products for our customers. Developing a network of women and helping them grow influence across our industry will help us all tap into the kind of creativity that our customers crave--and ultimately, give our customers a competitive advantage."

"As an integrated marketing communications major, I was enticed by the depth of impact that graphic arts and print has on campaigns in the industry," said Rachel Smith of Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. "I'm excited to be part of the WPMN and meet industry professionals to enhance my personal and professional growth as I get ready to enter the job market later this year."

The Women's Print Mentoring Network is open to any woman employed or interested in pursuing a career in the print or graphic communications industry.
