In-Person Mini-Panel at Franklin High School (Seattle)

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during a 45-min Mini-Panel at Franklin High School, 3013 Mt. Baker Blvd. Seattle WA.

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Franklin High School serves a diverse student population, with high percentages of Asian and Black/African American students. Students speak first languages including Somali, Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Tagalog, Oromo, Tigrinya, and Amharic. 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 Monday, May 15.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Since only 2 panelists are participating in this mini-panel, we want to ensure students are exposed to a variety of opportunities in STEM. If your job is similar to another panelist who has already signed up, we may ask you to participate in the next event instead.
