Sarah Winterbottom, Business Development Manager, Josero, and Izabella Ivanovici, Specialist Recruitment Consultant, INV Recruitment, announce the initiation of Women in Sign and Graphics UK, a new initiative that aims to inspire, encourage and promote women in the industry, and are extending an invitation to celebrate the launch by attending aspecial event taking place at The Sign Group, Leeds, on December 3rd.

The group founders put the idea into action after realising they shared a passion for encouraging female talent, opening upopportunities for women, and promoting diversity in a male-dominated industry. They kicked off with a LinkedIn group, Women in Sign and Graphics UK, as a platform to build a community, start conversations, and provide support and resources to those that need them.

The next step is December’s launch event, which will include inspirational male and female speakers offering their perspectives on working towards a more gender-balanced industry, with a particular focus on apprenticeships, education, and helping the next generation kickstart their careers. The Sign Group are supportive of the initiative and enthusiastic about the event, and offered their premises as a location for the inaugural event.

Women in Sign and Graphics UK is also working with The Printing Charity, and a representative from the organisation will be speaking at the inaugural event. Other speakers include The Sign Group, Sam Armstrong of Make It Happen, Marcus Timson of FM Future, Karis Copp of Karis Copp Media, and founders of Women in Sign and Graphics UK, Sarah and Izabella.

Our purpose is to unite Women in Signs & Graphics UK to inspire, encourage and promote women in the industry whilst being part of a group of like-minded individuals sharing ideas and working with male and female ambassadors to help in our quest for the industry to be more equal.”

Sarah Winterbottom, Business Development Manager, Josero

A massive part of the conversation will be how can we inject new blood into the industry and of course, how can we keep moving forward post-COVID. We want everyone to leave our events with a wealth of information and ideas as well as new relationships.”
