Women in Print Alliance Stresses Empowerment at 2018 SGIA Expo

SGIA

Fairfax, Virginia – The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) Women in Print Alliance has finalized the agenda for its breakfast at the 2018 SGIA Expo. Featured speaker Kathy Korman Frey, Founder of Hot Mommas® Project, will lead exercises to empower women in the industry. 

“There is a great deal of research on the importance of mentoring for career success. We will discuss the how and why of this together at the Women in Print Alliance Breakfast,” said Frey. 

Hot Mommas Project is the world’s largest women’s case study library, which provides access to award-winning research used to increase self-efficacy. The project has reached and impacted women in over 129 countries across the world. 

Frey will share research from her work at the breakfast through a series of interactive activities. The session will include a sample Hot Mommas Project case study analyzing the challenges a woman could face in a culture geared toward their male counterparts. 

Participants will also discuss their goals and challenges with one another and will be asked to share advice and strategies to support their peers’ objectives. 

“What I am most excited about is that the breakfast attendees will learn from and connect with one of the most important assets in their lives and for their careers: each other,” said Frey. 

STAHLS’ will sponsor the Women in Print Breakfast, and their new CEO, Carleen Gray, will also speak at the event. 

“I am looking forward to participating in SGIA's Women in Print Breakfast. I really believe that success is dependent on your actions and accomplishments. Be fearless. Be a “do-er”, take action, don’t wait to be asked,” said Gray 

The Women in Print Alliance Breakfast will be held on Friday, October 19, 7:30–9:00 am. (Tickets are $30 and are available with your SGIA Expo registration.) Contact Sarah Perkins (link sends e-mail) with any questions.
