Like the Oscar. Except more Girlie.
Announcing the First Annual Girlie
Girls Who Print, an international virtual sorority for women in the printing industry, is pleased to announce the first annual Girlie award, which will be presented to an outstanding member of the community during the annual National “Girls Who Print” Day luncheon on Tuesday, September 30.
Now in its third year, National GWP Day is hosted in Print Media Centr’s Printerverse at Graph Expo. Print Media Centr principal Deborah Corn and GWP founder Mary Beth Smith began discussing a way to use the worldwide platform to raise awareness of the contribution of women in print. Presenting an award seemed logical, so in keeping with the lighthearted nature of GWP, the concept of the Girlie was born.
While we may not take ourselves too seriously, we DO take our members seriously. Among the criteria used in selecting the first recipient were commitment to communications, strong leadership, a history of mentoring, an eye to the future, and a keen interest in supporting women within the industry.
Who will this year’s Girlie winner be?
We’re not telling! You will find out at the same time the winner does on Tuesday, September 30. Whether you’re live in Chicago with us, or participating through live streaming video, don’t miss it!
