This program is currently full for those looking for a mentor. You can sign-up for our waiting list. 

It’s time to sign up for the mentorship program at the IRE Conference in New Orleans. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to fill out this form to be matched and enjoy a continental breakfast Friday morning at the conference.

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 match 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.

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]. Thank you to the Scripps Howard Foundation for sponsoring this program.
