Green recognised on ‘Women of Influence’ list

Pantera Press CEO and co-founder Alison Green has been recognised in the Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence 2016 list.

Green was recognised in the business enterprise category. The AFR wrote that Green, who co-founded Pantera Press, with its emphasis on literacy, when she was 22, ‘exemplifies the trend towards cross-pollination between business and social good’.

‘The literacy piece had always come into it because as the core part of the business I thought it was really important to be investing in that next generation of Australians, writers and readers,’ said Green. ‘So the business was about finding new authors, but then at the time we had started our Good Books Doing Good Things program, investing a percentage of the revenue into fixing the literacy gap.’

A winner in each category, and an overall winner, will be announced at an awards ceremony on 27 October at the Sydney Town Hall. For more information, click here.
