The Graphic Communications Workforce Coalition (GCWC) has completed a comprehensive survey of the industry and released a white paper detailing results and recommended actions. The paper, titled “Workforce Concerns in Graphic Communications” was a direct result of an industry survey taken earlier this year. The respondents covered all areas of the industry including service providers, suppliers, associations, and schools.

The paper was researched and written by Donna Painter (Millersville University), Steve Bonoff (Printing Industry Midwest), Jeff Peterson (Foil & Special Effects Association) and Justin Egresitz (Millersville University). The paper includes a summary of the findings as well as a key section on how organizations can be a part of the solution. This includes several recommendations for actions that can be taken by companies, organizations and schools. Career awareness is a key item on the GCWC agenda, and this important information is part of its work to promote and support the industry.

Created in 2019, the Coalition membership currently consists of over 50 organizations from across all spectrums of the industry and representation of North America. The group comprises concerned associations, educators, and industry representatives (service providers and suppliers) who are united to address this key industry concern.
