IGNITE Mini-Panel

Virtual Mini-Panel (High School)

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during a 50-min Mini-Panel!

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high-demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Women and gender diverse professionals who work in these fields are highly encouraged to sign up as Panelists!

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 April 18.

We are also looking for a Facilitator and Tech Host to moderate and provide technical support, respectively. The Facilitator and Tech Host will meet with our IGNITE organizer for a 1-hour scheduled training before your first event.

Many student attendees are from Cabrillo High School in Lompoc Unified School District in Southern California and were awarded Cybersecurity scholarships for SANS programs and others in the group are learning Circuits (Arduinos) or MS Office and currently building databases.

PLEASE NOTE: Since only 2 panelists are participating in each 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.

Approximate time commitment:

New Volunteer: 3.25 hours 2 hours prep (training, coaching, materials review) + 1.25-hour event

Returning Volunteer: 1.75 hours 30 minutes prep + 1.25-hour event
