IRE Mentoring

IRE thanks the Scripps Howard Foundation for its continued support of the mentoring program.

We also salute the dedicated IRE members who have volunteered to share their time and expertise as mentors.

One-on-One Mentoring

IRE's conferences offer an opportunity for in-depth, one-on-one coaching on data-driven investigative reporting techniques, news applications and tools. These private sessions allow attendees to seek advice on challenging projects or followup ideas and professional development. These sessions are not for job seekers; they are designed for teaching and sharing information.

IRE pairs those who signed up with a mentor, and contact information is provided to both mentors and those who want to be mentored. Mentors and mentees can then agree on a time and place to meet at the conference.

Mentees should bring examples of work and story ideas.
