Committee members are responsible for recruiting new members and are ambassadors who help new and potential members find their place at WICI.

Programming Committee
The Programming Committee develops and produces relevant and engaging events for NYWICI members and prospective members throughout each season. Our event programming is designed to educate, empower and connect women from all communications disciplines.

The Student Programming Committee focuses on helping the next generation of communications professionals navigate their paths to success. The committee provides programming for undergraduate and graduate students that aims to help them thrive in today’s rapidly changing landscape of communications.

Industry leaders in media, advertising, public relations, non-profits, magazines and more come together at the Bootcamp to share their wisdom with students through panels and workshops. Additional events include behind-the-scenes tours of popular companies and brands, and workshops that teach students how to network, interview and more. This committee also focuses on reaching out and reestablishing relationships at the academic level.
