Administrative History

Chicago Women in Publishing was created in 1972. Its mission statement describes the organization's purpose:

"Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP) is a nonprofit volunteer organization formed in 1972 for professionals in the publishing industry and allied fields. [Their] purpose is to explore and improve the status of publishing professionals, to assist members in greater professional achievement, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. CWIP offers programs, services, and networking opportunities to advance publishing careers. Membership is open to women and men who support CWIP's goals. [Their] aim is to be Chicago's most respected source of publishing education, information, outreach, leadership, and career opportunities. In 2008, the group celebrated their 35th anniversary. Having evolved to meet the current needs of their member base, the group has a comprehensive website and hosts many events. They also aid their members in finding work in the publishing industry through a job board."
