Africa Print is the proud media partner of the inaugural Women in Print Luncheon to be hosted by Printing SA in 2022. For the first time in Printing SA’s 111 year history, it is hosting an event that honours the ‘Women in Print,’ across all the sub-sectors that the association represent, who have emerged as stalwarts and heavyweights in an industry that has been male dominated for over a century. Ren-Form is a title sponsor of the event. 

The first part of the luncheon will be a panel discussion with some of industry’s most formidable heroines, who will be looking at the following:

Disruption: don’t just survive but thrive in a production world

The discussions will highlight tips and tools that can be taught, instilled and implemented for print businesses to navigate and/or redefine themselves and company culture post-Covid, while also exploring how attracting female talent into their businesses has led to increased profitability and greater business success. Industry guru, Jean Lloyd, Global Principal Analyst of Colour Digital Label and Packaging (CDLP), will be leading the discussions.

Part two will see the young mavericks of the industry take the stage and unpack how they have managed to forge careers in a production world that is integrating and accommodating the diversity of the next generation at a very slow pace. These ladies will be exploring diversification within business and how businesses can do their part in finding and nurturing young and inexperienced talent to help ensure the future of print in the workplace by using technologies, machine learning, big-data, advanced process workflows and collaboration in changing the traditional way of looking at every facet of our industry. Africa Print editor Meggan McCarthy will be leading this panel discussion.

In the step towards equality, Printing SA has opened the upcoming Women in Print Luncheon 2022 to everyone – men and women.

‘We have a long way to go in understanding the dynamics in our industry in the past three years alone. Printing SA is committed to bringing all the leaders, male and female, along this journey. The event promises to be a day of vibrant, energetic and robust discussions and debates with fun and exciting entertainment, ‘ said Abisha Katerere marketing executive at Printing SA.
