2023 AccessFest

October 12

AccessFest is IRE’s annual virtual-by-design conference. The two-and-a-half-day event will take place online, October 12-14, 2023. The conference, previously branded as the DBEI Symposium, will expand on IRE’s efforts to provide more accessible training centered on belonging, equity, and inclusion in the newsroom and through better news coverage of inequities in the communities journalists serve. AccessFest will also feature data classes and more traditional investigative reporting panels that are typically seen at NICAR, the data journalism conference, and the IRE Conference. This reframing is part of IRE’s commitment to accessible training; be it not only to learning new skills and techniques but also in consideration of our members' health, caregiving responsibilities and/or financial constraints.
