Expanding on the Women in Print events that began ten years ago in New Zealand, Heidelberg is now sponsoring networking opportunities across Australia for females in the print media industry. Under the title ‘Women in Print’, Heidelberg has brought together women to work with Georgie Grabyn, Heidelberg Australia/ New Zealand’s HR manager to stage a series of dinners during March. It is hoped that these dinners will achieve the same reputation as those in New Zealand.

“Women in Print events held in New Zealand have been overwhelmingly attended and we hope to continue the success across the Tasman,” said Grabyn.

Catherine Lumby (pictured) will be the guest speaker at each of these dinners. Lumby has worked as a journalist, author and academic and is widely recognised for her contribution to both print media and feminism.

Grabyn hopes that these convergences will increase recognition of women’s presence within the industry. “Through regularly meeting and interacting we acknowledge, reflect on and seek to develop the contribution women make to the prosperity and character of the printing community in Australia,” she said.

Women In Print will be held on the following dates:

  • Brisbane: Friday 9 March
  • Sydney: Thursday 15 March
  • Melbourne: Thursday 22 March
  • Perth: Wednesday 28 March
  • Adelaide: Friday 30 March
