IGNITE Panel at Burton High School

In-Person BIPOC Women in STEM Panel at O’Connell High School (San Francisco)

*note updated date: May 17*

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE BIPOC Panel at John O’Connell High School at 2355 Folsom St, San Francisco 94110!

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. O’Connell High School serves a diverse student population, with high percentages of Latinx and African American students and students who speak English as a second language and Spanish as a first language. 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 10-min 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 May 9.

Finally, you can help capture the inspiration during this event by signing up to be an IGNITE Event Recorder and writing an event summary for the IGNITE Worldwide website.
