Women in Lighting


This ALA committee is an all-inclusive group of lighting industry professionals dedicated to providing opportunities to:

  • Network with other women in the lighting industry

  • Recognize and encourage achievement and leadership of women in the lighting industry

  • Provide mentoring opportunities for women of all levels of expertise 

Women in Lighting Committee is raising funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) in the name of Karen Krieger who recently passed away. Karen was vice president of BC Sales, and her husband, Brad, president of BC Sales, serves on the ALA Manufacturing Representative Steering Committee. Karen’s aunt, Martha Graham of Martha Graham & Associates, is an involved ALA Women in Lighting Committee member.

We have created a limited-edition collectible pin with the intent to establish an annual fundraising initiative for a worthy cause around each Conference. This year’s pins are sponsored by Visual Comfort & Co. making it possible to donate 100 percent of the $20 purchase price to support OCRA in Karen’s memory. The association and Women in Lighting Committee are grateful for the opportunity to honor Karen and her family.

ALA Women in Lighting to Host Reception, Kick Off Charitable Initiative during January 2023 Lightovation in Dallas

Monday, December 5, 2022/Categories: News, Industry News, ALA News, Women in Lighting

The American Lighting Association (ALA) Women in Lighting (WIL) Committee will host its popular networking reception at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2023, during the Lightovation show in Dallas. The event, sponsored by Maxim Lighting, will take place in the company’s Dallas Market Center Trade Mart showroom (TM 3901).

In addition to providing food, signature cocktails, and a chance to interact with peers, the WIL reception will also serve as a platform for the group to launch its 2023 charitable initiative. Previously, the organization raised $2,965 by selling pins commemorating ALA’s annual conferences. Thanks to pin sponsors Visual Comfort & Co. and Varaluz, all proceeds from those sales benefitted the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance in memory of Karen Krieger.

A new pin design promoting ALA’s 2023 Conference in Lake Tahoe, Calif., Sept. 10-12, will debut at the January reception. Available for sale at $20 each and sponsored by Maxim Lighting, the pins will benefit WIL’s 2023 charity Dress for Success, a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help women thrive in work and life.

“The mission statement of Dress for Success truly aligns with the mission of ALA’s Women in Lighting group,” said Dawn Howard, area lighting specialist for Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery, who serves on the WIL Philanthropy Subcommittee. “Aside from fundraising for them with our popular collectible pins, there are other opportunities for us to work together because they are a worldwide organization with numerous local chapters, including in Dallas.”

Attendance at the WIL reception is open to everyone, regardless of gender or ALA membership status. The group’s in-person events aim to foster connections for professional women from all areas of the lighting industry and at all levels of experience. Reception attendees will receive gifts and have the opportunity to enter to win a complimentary delegate registration for ALA’s 2023 Conference in Lake Tahoe. 

In addition, ALA members are encouraged to nominate outstanding women for the Women in Lighting Leadership Award (WILLA) at LightingWomen.com. The deadline for submitting 2023 WILLA nominations is Jan. 31, 2023. Any ALA member can nominate another member for this honor, which will be presented at the WIL reception at the June 21-24 Lightovation show in Dallas.
