2022 Matrix Awards

LEADING THE WAY FOR WOMEN

Over the last 52 years, the women of NYWICI have led the way in breaking down barriers for other women and supporting the next generation of female leaders. They’ve done it through their personal career triumphs, within the organizations they support and in the world around us through the work that they do. The Matrix Awards presented by NYWICI is our moment to honor our industry’s most outstanding leaders and celebrate all the courageous women that have come before them and those that will come after.

Since 1970, the Matrix Awards have been presented by NYWICI—the city’s largest organization of professional women in the communications industry. It has honored and celebrated female empowerment and achievement in the field of communications and the arts since its first honoree, Gloria Steinem. The Matrix Award honors women that are making a difference, building community and inspiring the next generation of female leaders in their field. Prior honorees include Maya Angelou, Halle Berry, Sheryl Crow, Tina Fey, Gayle King, Audra McDonald, Sheryl Sandberg, Joanna Coles, Cindi Berger, Dia Simms and Meredith Vieira.
