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.
