After five years, Kirsten Taylor has called time on her role as Women in Print’s Victorian patron and the search is now on for a replacement.
Taylor, the creative director at Taylor’d Press, multiple Power 50 finalist and 2020 PVCA Woman in Print, is committed to staying involved in the organisation which supports women in print by providing networking opportunities, sharing knowledge, support and in general creating a community of women to support each other.
Taylor is also ready and willing to provide a thorough handover to the new incumbent once this has been decided through a nomination process and a Women in Print board election.
She said the biggest time commitment in the role is organising the annual Women in Print breakfast which is held each August.
Taylor resigns from her post after a record attendance at this year’s Women in Print breakfast, no easy feat given the challenges of the pandemic. Her dedication to the role and enthusiasm has also seen the Women in Print community in Victoria grow continuously.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my years with Women in Print. Meeting so many amazing individuals across our industry has been wonderful for not only my professional network, but also for my personal growth to know I have a village of support around me. I recommend the role to anyone across Victoria as it has been one of the best industry initiatives I’ve been involved with,” Taylor said.
Women in Print Founder and Chair, Susan Heaney, thanked Taylor for her dedicated service to the organisation.
“I have had the absolute honour to work with Kirsten over the past five years and thank her personally and on behalf of the Women in Print Board and Women in Print community for her tireless and passionate contribution,” Heaney said.
“Kirsten will be missed, however we are also encouraged to welcome a new Patron and I urge women across the industry in Victoria to consider submitting a nomination.”
Women in Print Executive Director, Kellie Northwood, said working with Taylor has been a privilege.
“A passionate industry volunteer, Kirsten is also always a wonderful support when you need which has been so valuable over the past year. Women in Print is calling on all women across our industry – design, print, publisher, letterbox, mail to consider nominating and becoming part of this wonderful diversity and inclusion program for industry. Nominate yourself or consider nominating someone else, it’s a great initiative to be part of,” Northwood said.
