New York Women in Communications, Inc. is the premier organization for communications professionals in the New York metropolitan area.

We are a not-for-profit association 501(c)(3) founded in 1929, and we operate in a city that leads the industry and shapes the way people communicate around the world.

​Unlike other industry organizations, NYWICI supports women across the full spectrum of the rapidly changing communications landscape and at every career stage — from student to C-suite. Membership is made up of students, professionals at entry levels, mid-career stages and top management, as well as growing numbers of entrepreneurs.​ As various communication channels and disciplines continue to converge, NYWICI is uniquely positioned to help our members navigate every aspect of the industry and connect with other women in diverse fields, including print and digital media, broadcasting, marketing, advertising, video and content creation.

Corporate sponsors play an important role in the life of NYWICI. You can help to support high-visibility events and programs and contribute gifts and in-kind services that enrich the overall quality of services NYWICI can provide. In return, you have privileged access to the most influential female decision-makers in the communications industry.

By forming a partnership with NYWICI, these corporations received name recognition in connection with events attended by top industry thinkers and innovators. NYWICI events receive wide press coverage, and the issues they deal with attract the attention of intelligent and affluent women, from students to senior executives, across the country.

Corporate sponsorship is promoted through frequent emails, meeting announcements, newsletters, and event programs.  NYWICI hosts events and programs throughout the year with our flagship event being the Matrix Awards.  Since 1971, the Matrix Awards have been given annually to a group of outstanding women leaders who exemplify excellence, the courage to break boundaries and steadfast commitment to champion the next generation of trailblazers, creatives and communicators.
