Decatur HS IGNITE Panel

Decatur High School and IGNITE hosted a Women in Technology Panel.  Over 30 diverse young women learned about careers in tech and the different paths each of our panelist took to obtain their career.  Our panel consisted of engineers, coders and project managers from Boeing, Microsoft, and Expedia and ExtraHOP, a startup tech company in Seattle.  The Decatur students made connections for future job shadows and one young woman is getting help with preparing to go to her dream college of Stanford.  The Decatur students were excited about the opportunity and many have decided to join the after school coding club.  Over half of the students signed up for the field trip to Microsoft for the following week.  Thank you IGNITE and thank you to our amazing panelists.
