This program is currently full. Please sign up for the waiting list. Find your mentor for the CAR Conference in Denver and take advantage of IRE’s network of journalists, one of the largest in the country. Many experienced reporters, editors and developers are willing to share their vast knowledge.

These private, one-on-one sessions allow conference attendees to seek advice on challenging reporting projects, get ideas for further professional development and to forge connections for the road ahead. They are unique in that they are not designed for job seekers, but instead focus on teaching and sharing information.

IRE will pair you with a mentor, and contact information will be exchanged so that mentors and mentees can agree on a time and place to meet at the conference.

Space in this popular program is limited, so sign up by Monday, February 15, 2016. In order to participate, you must be registered for the conference.

Mentees should come prepared with questions, examples of work and story ideas. (Note: IRE is unable to provide private access to audiovisual equipment for broadcast mentoring. Please make your own arrangements if your mentor agrees to review a work sample.) If you have questions, please contact Megan Luther at [email protected]
