Received an email about resetting your password on the IRE website? We recently updated our site, and this reset will help improve security.

At the same time, you’ll be required to update a few fields, including the race/ethnicity portion of your member profile. While one response is “Decline to specify,” we hope you will decide to indicate your race/ethnicity. Now, nearly two-thirds of our members leave that information blank. That means we can’t answer a simple question: How many journalists of color are members of IRE? Until we have a better baseline, we also can’t track how we’re doing in our efforts to diversify our membership.

So, please consider taking a few moments to update all of the information in your member profile.

With better data, IRE can better serve you.

If you have questions, please contact us at info@ire.org or 573-882-2042.
