Girls Who Print Day, an annual celebration that reflects the camaraderie of the industry’s largest professional network of women in the print, marketing and graphic communications field, will be held on 22 October as a virtual event.
The event, now numbering almost 7,000 members around the world, is dedicated to the mission of empowering women throughout their careers with networking, mentorship, education and events.
Launched in 2012, Girls Who Print Day provides a platform for conversations and education that foster career and business success from current and future female leaders in the industry.
Girls Who Print Day was a cornerstone event in the Printerverse booth at Graph Expo/PRINT in Chicago, previously attracting hundreds of attendees for its annual leadership panel and Girlie Award presentation.
In 2014, it recognised the importance of this program and began broadcasting the event live to a professional and student audience at home.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and travel restrictions in place, Girls Who Print Day 2020 will be an all-virtual event.
Registrants that are unable to attend can register for replays.

10:30-11:15 AM ET
Opening session with Deborah Corn
