Studies reveal that women are persistently underrepresented in the media as experts and authorities. To change this picture, NCE is partnering with 85 Broads to promote and engage women thought leaders in the news. 85 Broads is a global network of 25,000 women who live in over 90 countries. These trailblazing women work for thousands of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations as investment bankers, lawyers, educators, venture capitalists, hedge fund managers, philanthropists, athletes, scientists, doctors, engineers, artists, and entrepreneurs.
To expand media opportunities for NCE experts at the local and regional levels, NCE has teamed up with Atlanta Daybook. Through a chain of local online newswires which it operates in the Atlanta, Dallas/Ft. Worth and Nashville markets, Daybook serves as a regional communications hub, aggregating news from communications professionals and making this information available to local journalists and other area influencers in business, government and community affairs. With its pervasive local market reach, Daybook complements NewsCertified's existing national and global reach.

Partnering with Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism, NCE is making its database available to graduate students filing stories for Medill Reports. Each day, students write and produce multimedia news stories for the Web and print. These reports are then made available for syndication by various media outlets in Chicago and Washington, D.C. From the Medill website: "The Washington program's reporting has been recognized professionally by numerous awards, including prizes from the Society of Professional Journalists, the National Press Foundation and Investigative Reporters and Editors. Medill Washington students are fully credentialed working journalists getting real-world experience, a hallmark of the Medill School."
