In December, the SCS Madison office hosted the Great Lakes Graphics Association’s “Women in Print” luncheon and program. The purpose of this group is to bring together “women working in a man’s world” and give them a space to share experiences, offer coaching and advice, and share examples with women of all ages. The group motivates and encourages each other to push past old gender norms and share experiences with women of all ages. It was wonderful that SCS hosted 17 women from their early 20s to women in their late 60s who were among the first to call print shops their employers.
Environmental sustainability is part of many printers’ business models. The network and GLGA provide opportunities to discuss best practices for moving in a green direction, addressing critical regulatory issues, and environmental reporting — while having many minds contributing great ideas and proven solutions.
This was the 5th meeting of the group, and we’re proud to host them, as it is challenging to find safe places to meet during COVID, RSV, and flu season. Cheryl Moran spoke about how she grew up in print, from her coursework in college to her first job as a secretary in a print house to her evolution as an environmental, health, and safety trainer, manager, and director. She continues to offer her expertise to printers across the US while she trains and develops her team here at SCS.
It was wonderful to see everyone, especially after being virtual for so long. We look forward to hosting more Great Lakes Graphics Association events and opening our doors even wider in 2023. If you are interested in joining us, you can contact Cheryl Moran.
