This week, New York Women In Communications (NYWICI) held the 2010 Matrix Awards presented by NBC Universal at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Grand Ballroom to honor achievers in communications (TV, newspapers, PR, magazines). We were able to catch some of this year’s recipients on the red carpet to ask them, “what makes you a lady?”

Sheryl Crow (Singer/Songwriter): “Having a system of morals and ethics that inform me about the way I look at my life and the way I treat people”

Marissa Mayer (Google): “I think for me it’s being a lady but also a geek, and that’s what makes me relevant to the internet—you have to embrace your geek.”

Tina Fey (NBC’s 30 Rock): “On a regular day, I wouldn’t wear heels and a dress like this, but I think you are a lady on any day of the week whether you put your shoes and panty hose on or not… plus I’m technically female.”

Susan Chira (New York Times): “I think that a lady these days is someone who has an opportunity to try to work hard in her profession but also in my case be lucky enough to have a family.”

Ina Garten (Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa): “I do what I love to do, I really enjoy doing it, and I try to do it really well – I also enormously admire the women who shaped me and my work”

As if a room full of accomplished women wasn’t enough, the event also featured a charitable online auction, which is still going on and open to anyone. You can bid on everything from Saturday Night Live tickets to a behind-the-scenes experience with Mariska Hargitay on the set of Law & Order: SVU. Proceeds benefit the NYWICI Foundation’s scholarship fund, which grants educational funding for young women interested in advancing their careers in communications. Women helping women—we love that!
