The IRE Conference offers an opportunity for in-depth, one-on-one coaching on investigative reporting. These private sessions allow attendees to seek advice on challenging stories or follow-up ideas.
IRE pairs those who signed up with a mentor, and contact information is provided to both mentors and those who want to be mentored. Mentors and mentees can then agree on a time and place to meet at the conference.
Register now for the 2014 IRE Mentoring Program.
Looking for a roommate for the conference? Post your information in our Google Doc. Please include your name, contact info, gender, smoker (y/n) and when you're arriving and leaving. Once you find a roommate, please delete yourself from the list.
