IRE Board
sets meeting

The IRE Board of Directors will meet 9 a.m.-noon CDT Aug. 14 and 9 a.m.-noon CDT Aug. 15 during its retreat at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. The meeting is open to all members; to attend via Zoom, register here.
The agenda includes discussion of possible committee changes and proposed changes to Article 8 of the Code of Bylaws and to a 2006 bylaws amendment about the IRE Endowment Fund. The board also will participate in diversity training.
The proposal to change the bylaws would eliminate gender references in Article 8 and turn the endowment fund amendment into a new Article 10, among other changes. As required, the proposal was first posted here in early July to give members 30 days' notice to give comments before the board votes. Send comments to IRE Treasurer Brian Rosenthal at

DBEI22 coming soon

IRE is planning our second-annual event focused on diversity, belonging, equity and inclusion (DBEI), coming Oct. 20-21. Registration will open soon for the all-virtual event, which will help provide members with tools to help make their newsrooms more diverse and inclusive as well as how to better cover historically marginalized communities and topics. There will be sessions geared toward reporters, editors, educators and students.
We hope you'll join us!

Investigative Journalism Census

IRE and the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting have teamed up to collect demographic information directly from investigative reporters, editors, producers and others who conduct investigative work. Our end goal is to provide demographic data that can be used to diversify who gets to conduct investigative work and steer future hiring and retention practices. Phase I of the project ended July 31; the work is continuing.
