In-Person Panel at Bates Technical College STEM Conference (Tacoma, WA)
Inspire high school IGNITE Students in STEM during a panel as part of the STEM Conference at Bates Technical College!
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high-demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Attending schools serve a diverse population, including students who identify as Hispanic/Latinx and Black/African American. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals who represent these perspectives are highly encouraged to sign up as Panelists to share their stories and answer student questions!
This is an incredible opportunity to change an IGNITE student’s life! After signing up as a panelist, volunteers are required to review our short Panelist Training Video at least once per school year and attend a live, interactive Virtual Panelist Coaching Session if they have not attended one in the past. Training must be completed by March 1, 2024.
Bates Technical College Central Campus is located at 2320 S. 19th, Tacoma WA 98405. The STEM Conference takes place from 10am-1pm, with the Panel occurring during the second half of the event.
