Printing Industries of America and Girls Who Print aim to fix that with the launch of its Women’s Print Mentoring Network by matching women in the printing and graphic communications industry with their peers. Born from the Women’s Leadership in Print Advisory Committee, the Mentoring Network will address the growing need to develop and retain women as a driving force in our industry.
This is not your average, work-mandated mentorship program. In the Women’s Print Mentoring Network, mentors and mentees have both made the choice to be here— meaning everyone is engaged, excited, and ready to share their knowledge. The Women’s Print Mentoring Network is open to all women in the industry including students looking to pursue print-oriented careers.
Whether you’re a college student hoping to start a career in the print industry, a professional returning from a period away or someone who needs a little guidance navigating their chosen career path, there is no better place for you to find a mentor. Becoming a Women’s Print Mentoring Network mentee means that you will be paired with someone who shares your professional interests.

The wealth of information and experience that you have puts you in the unique position to help guide others in the industry. What was the one piece of advice that you wish someone would have told you? Now is the time for you to share that knowledge!
