IRE and the Ida B.

Our goal is to provide demographic data that can be used to diversify who gets to conduct investigative work and steer future hiring and retention practices.
IRE announces the IRE Ring of Honor, a new fundraising initiative celebrating members who have made a significant contribution to the organization and to investigative journalism.
