Swanline Print Group sponsors Women in Packaging (UK)

March 08, 2018

Swanline Print Group is getting behind female packaging professionals by supporting Women in Packaging UK (WIP UK), an organisation that connects and recognises women throughout the entire UK packaging supply chain.

The company has pledged to sponsor WIP UK throughout 2018, bolstering the initiative’s efforts to restore gender equilibrium through a range of opportunities from mentoring to networking events.

[blockquote font="2" cite="Nick Kirby, Swanline Print Group CEO" italic="yes"]“Swanline is committed to influencing positive change and addressing the packaging industry’s gender imbalance. We are thrilled to be able to support Women in Packaging UK’s important work and to help the organisation create a stronger, more egalitarian sector.”[/blockquote]

The sponsorship will allow WIP UK to deliver more activities and events, providing collaborative networking opportunities that help women to gain the training and recognition needed to excel.

[blockquote font="2" cite="Joanna Stephenson, director of PHD Marketing and Strategy and co-founder of WIP UK" italic="yes"]"As in many sectors, the packaging field is largely male-dominated, meaning females often face an uphill career struggle. It is vital that the industry comes together to tackle this issue and Swanline’s support throws down the gauntlet to other companies who believe in offering equal access to all.”[/blockquote]

WIP UK was established in 2014 to back female employees in roles across the entire supply chain, from design to manufacture, marketing and delivery. The organisation considers diversity to be crucial to the industry’s future prosperity and works with a range of high-profile companies to promote the valuable contribution made by women.
