This special edition of the IRE Journal is available to the public free of charge with the goal of improving industry coverage of Indigenous communities and highlighting the important work of Indigenous journalists.
We share stories about the importance of historical archives and oral history, environmental reporting through an Indigenous perspective, Indigeneity’s data dilemma and more. Plus, get tips and resources for reporting on Indigenous communities.
As we near the end of 2023, join us in reflecting on all the ways IRE empowers greater impact, accountability and equity in investigative journalism. Your support of IRE – whether it's through donations, your membership, event registration or volunteering your time – helps journalists across the world develop the skills and relationships they need to produce better investigative journalism. Make a donation, and give us a shout-out on social media saying why you choose to #SupportIRE. Plus, host a Facebook fundraiser on Nov. 28 for Giving Tuesday. It's a fun way to encourage your friends, family and colleagues to support IRE.
Friends and family will celebrate the life of IRE legend Phil Meyer on Dec. 2 at Chapel Hill, N.C.
Service will be at Chapel of the Cross, starting at 10:30 a.m., followed by a reception. Meyer died Nov. 4 at home in Carrboro, N.C.
Meyer, 93, was professor emeritus and former Knight Chair of Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
IRE’s Phil Meyer Award, established in 2005, recognizes the best journalism using the social science research methods pioneered by Meyer. Contributions may be made in his honor to UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media, to IRE or Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Put "Phil Meyer" in the tribute or memo line. For details, see the full release.
To ensure that our bootcamps continue to equip journalists with the skills they need for the next 50 years, IRE is offering some new options for bootcampers in 2024.
In addition to a traditional bootcamp featuring the classic learning sequence of spreadsheets and SQL, you can now also choose a bootcamp that focuses exclusively on Google Sheets, diving deep into analysis, advanced functions for cleaning, joining and other tasks, or one that introduces you to the Python programming language and its many uses in the newsroom.
Looks like you haven't made a choice yet.
