Conference Focuses on Women in the Pet Industry

May 16, 2013

The event will focus on women pet professionals connecting, partnering and collaborating for mutual benefit.

“This has never happened before in the history of the pet industry,” Shawna Schuh, president of WIPIN, said. “Until now, our members have mostly connected via digital communication, so we’re very excited to bring our members together, face to face, for a weekend full of professional and educational events and networking opportunities.”

Pet professionals from all career paths within the industry are invited to attend the three-day conference and awards show, which will feature a variety of roundtable discussions and educational sessions.

WIPIN provides a forum for women whose careers specialize in the pet industry. Headquartered near Portland, it  includes representatives from the many career paths that exist within the pet industry, including groomers, kennels, pet store operators, trainers, breeders and animal welfare organizations.
