Young Professionals Programming
The Young Professionals Committee is here for that in-between phase between college and feeling like you have it all figured out (does anyone *ever* have it all figured out, though?). Aimed at members in their first five years after graduating, this committee connects you with other women in the same boat -- and prepares you with career essentials like how to ask for a raise, negotiate benefits and know your worth. The Young Professionals committee plans and executes several networking events, panels and happy hours throughout the year, including the successful "New Year, New You"; organizes a book club for committee members; and sends out regular emails with awesome job opportunities.
Chair: Megan Hess

Scholarship Fundraising via CharityBuzz Committee
NYWICI supports a robust scholarship program for college students and grants for members to enhance and advance their careers. One of our most effective fundraising efforts is through the CharityBuzz online auction of “extraordinary experiences and luxuries". The NYWICI CharityBuzz Auction kicks off with the Matrix Awards, but continues throughout the year, working with members and supporters of NYWICI to offer one-of-a-kind experiences, extraordinary internships, etc., to CharityBuzz bidders worldwide. Our partnership with CharityBuzz has raised in excess of $500K, and all the money goes directly towards our scholarship program––to benefit women at every stage of their communication careers!
