Virtual Mini-Panel for High School Students

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during a 45-min Mini-Panel!

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high-demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Students attending this Panel also include a high proportion of Spanish speakers. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals who represent these perspectives 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 March 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.

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
