R: In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we’re thrilled to talk with you today about women in print. Despite the influx of women to the field in the last decade or so, the ratio of women to men in print production is still 1:3. Do you have any thoughts on that?
M: I do. I think that when people hear the term “print production,” they think of a print shop. You know, big machines, lots of hardware, and actual physical print materials. But the business is about so much more that that, especially today.
So much of the work revolves around technology, innovations, breakthroughs. It’s actually a very dynamic and exciting field. So, similar to the diversity trajectory of the tech world, I think equity in print production has yet to catch up. But there are so many opportunities on the horizon that I can’t imagine a future where women aren’t going to be holding more leadership roles.
R: What kinds of opportunities come to mind?
M: Oh, all kinds. With the way the world works now, organizations like Sepire are poised to help their clients streamline, scale, and grow in sustainable ways and that’s really inspiring. Of course, Sepire helps clients with traditional “print shop” needs like high-volume printing and digital document production. But we also implement solutions for workflow management, produce marketing campaigns, and secure highly regulated communications to meet the strictest compliance requirements for the healthcare, banking, and insurance industries. We’re talking the highest levels of privacy and security here (PHI, HIPPA, etc.) so we have to be able to develop working relationships that are based on trust and open communication as mistakes could be table stakes for our clients.
