IRE emphasizes LGBTQ+ support

IRE believes strongly that all discrimination is damaging, and we stand in support of our LGBTQ+ colleagues, especially the trans community in light of legislation passed by the Florida Legislature. The new "bathroom" law doesn't apply to our hotels or any of the facilities IRE23 will be using in Orlando. We want to reiterate that IRE is committed to providing spaces where everyone can learn in a safe, supportive environment.
IRE believes a diverse membership strengthens the organization and has undertaken numerous initiatives to help achieve diversity and inclusion at all levels.

IRE condemns reporter arrest

IRE has joined the voices of other major journalism organizations from around the world in calling for the immediate release of U.S. journalist Evan Gershkovich, who was charged Friday with espionage by Russian authorities. He denied the charges, according to Russian news agencies. The Wall Street Journal, his employer, has said the arrest is a "vicious affront to a free press." Gershkovich was on assignment in Yekaterinburg in Russia's Ural Mountains when he was taken into custody.
