WOMEN’S ORGANIZATION EQUIPS YOUNG WOMEN FOR CAREERS IN MEDIA
WASHINGTON, DC — Seeing that traditional women’s organizations often dominate the media when it comes to discussion about women and policy, the Network of enlightened Women, known as NeW, launched the Student Media Fellowship. Over the course of the fellowship, students are given the opportunity to write and publish an op-ed, learn how to conduct themselves in media interviews, and engage with top female conservative media professionals in written and broadcast journalism.
Fellows have had their work published in The Daily Wire, Detroit News, Waco Tribune, NorthJersey.com, Campus Reform, and Lone Conservative and have been interviewed on Fox News, EWTN News Nightly, and The Daily Signal’s Problematic Women Podcast.
The NeW Student Media Fellowship is designed to equip young conservative women with training they do not receive in the classroom and prepare them in their upcoming careers.
During a book club event with Senator Joni Ernst on July 27, she shared with attendees, “The media does not tend to treat conservative voices as well as they treat the liberal voices…There is most certainly a media bias out there.”
Since the fellowship launched in August 2019, fellows have gone on to get jobs and internships at Fox News, The Federalist, and The Daily Signal, as well as communications positions on high level political campaigns.
“NeW is proud to give conservative women media experience that they can use to advance in their careers. These women provide diversity to national discussions. NeW is committed to educating, equipping, and empowering young women to help them find their voice and speak out as conservatives,” said Karin Lips, President of NeW.

The Network of Enlightened Women educates, equips, and empowers women to be principled leaders for a free society.
