Date: 24th October 2013
I wanted to share with everyone that we had a fabulous turnout for our first Ignite event in San Francisco at Mission High School on October 24th! 30 girls attended with great questions. We broke into small groups so the girls could talk more intimately with our women volunteers.
Thank you to our speakers Avery (software engineer at educational startup), Soo (data analytics at Facebook), Kate (founder of a biomedical startup), Robin (game designer and producer), Laura (structural engineer) as well as Becky Fulop (science teacher and our host at Mission High). Other teachers as well as the principal stopped by to see the first event in action. It’s great to know that we have support throughout the school.
We’ve already got our next two events scheduled and are hoping for a similar turnout and energy! November and December panelists, please keep an eye out for further details, coming soon.
