Virtual Film, Animation, and Women in STEAM Panel

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEAM!

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high-demand STEAM fields. By educator request, we are looking for STEAM professionals who work in film, animation, and related fields for this particular event.

The schools attending this event serve a diverse population, including students with Hispanic/Latinx and Asian heritage. Women, nonbinary, transgender, agender, and genderqueer professionals working in film, animation, and related fields, including those who speak Spanish or Somali as a first language, 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 17, 2023.

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.

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, with a time commitment of 12:30-1:30 pm PT.
