KENNESAW, Ga. — Women in Packaging, Inc., (WMPKG) and MeadWestvaco Corp. recently sealed a new corporate partnership that promises to expand the frontiers of possibility for generations of packaging professionals. This alliance was solidified during Women’s History Month, making the 2003 theme, “Women Pioneering the Future,” especially insightful.

While incorporating both pioneering women from U.S. history and innovative women of today, the theme also speaks to WMPKG and MeadWestvaco’s commitment to the revolutionary spirit of women and their limitless potential in a nontraditional field.

The companies teamed up officially on April 29, 2003, at the association’s new leadership summit series, “Are You a Packaging 10?” in Atlanta.

WMPKG was founded as an organization dedicated to helping increase diversity in the packaging industry and to encouraging industrywide commitment to the future of women in this field. MeadWestvaco is a leading global producer of packaging, coated and specialty papers; consumer and office products; and specialty chemicals.
