WICT NY is proud to announce our new signature event, the Seraphina Awards Luncheon. Our inaugural luncheon will be held on June 10, 2020, at the Edison Ballroom.

The Seraphina Awards Luncheon is named after the Seraphina, fiery angels known for their blend of fierceness and kindness. The event honors the spirit of the WICT Woman who exhibits many WICT Touchstones of Leadership such as being a CATALYST for change, being FEARLESS and INSPIRING others.  Awards will be presented to two Rising Stars, two Executive Champions, and one Seraphina–the highest honor our chapter can bestow upon a colleague.

This event is WICT NY’s premier fundraising initiative that will support our high-quality programming, professional development opportunities and award-winning mentoring programs. Our chapter is a volunteer-run organization and we rely heavily on your contributions to support our chapter’s efforts in uplifting women and developing future leaders for our industry.
