The Print & Visual Communication Association and Visual Connections have confirmed their support and sponsorship of the attendance of female apprentices across signage, display and commercial print at the upcoming Print & Prosecco events organised by Women in Print this month.
Organised by Women in Print, the Print & Prosecco events are evenings of networking for women in the industry to build their community engagement, share knowledge and support professional development and growth.
Rita Karagiannis, the Victorian patron of Women in Print, expressed her excitement about welcoming talented female apprentices from the sign and display industry to the Print & Prosecco Melbourne event.
Karagiannis said, “We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to talented female apprentices from the industry who will be joining us at our next Print & Prosecco night and becoming part of our Women in Print community.
“We are fortunate to have the generous support of Visual Connections and Print & Visual Communication Association, which have sponsored their tickets to attend this event. This support exemplifies the commitment of our industry to fostering diversity and providing opportunities for emerging talent.
“It’s fantastic to see a growing number of emerging female apprentices choosing to pursue careers in the print industry. This is an important step towards a more equitable and prosperous future for our field.”
Visual Connections general manager Sarah Moore added, “We are pleased to be able to provide support to the female apprentices across the signage and display sector as they embark on their journey in the print industry. This event promises to be a fantastic networking opportunity for them, enabling them to connect with seasoned professionals and other women who share their passion for print.”
The event will provide the opportunity for networking, education and celebration of the accomplishments of women in the print industry. Attendees can expect discussions, opportunities to connect with industry peers and a chance to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow industry professionals.
“Celebrating the diversity of our industry is not just a goal; it’s an imperative. Supporting female apprentices to engage with their industry peers is a cornerstone of our commitment to equality and progress. In supporting their active participation, we are able to bring our female apprentices on the journey, ensuring a vibrant and inclusive future for print,” Print & Visual Communication Association CEO Kellie Northwood commented.
Sandy Aspinall, the South Australian patron and deputy chair of Women in Print concluded: “An amazing opportunity for young women just starting their career in the industry to come along and meet and socialise with ladies across the sector. They will be welcomed with open arms, and there will be plenty of friendly faces and supportive, inspirational advice will be on hand, I’m sure.”
