NY Women in Communications Invites You To Connect

If you ever got a terrific piece of career advice, here is your opportunity to share it.

New York Women in Communications has launched an interactive video series called “Connect with the Women Who Connect the World,” featuring journalists Katie Couric and Arianna Huffington, Internet executive Susan Lyne, marketing expert Mary Lou Quinlan, and CRT/Tanaka‘s chief creative officer¬†Patrice Tanaka (pictured, who talks about her late-in-life adoption of ballroom dancing). Each has won a Matrix Award from Women in Communications.

Women interested in participating in the program are asked to record and submit a 25-second video sharing the best advice they have ever received.

A montage of the produced series will launch at The Matrix Awards on April 23, held during a luncheon at The Waldorf Hotel, where the 2012 Matrix Award honorees will be saluted. The organization plans to continue the series throughout the year to inspire the next generations of communications pros.
