In-Person Panel at Burton High School (San Francisco)
Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE Panel at Phillip & Sala Burton High School at 400 Mansell St, San Francisco, CA 94134!
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Burton High School serves a diverse student population, with high percentages of Latinx and Black students and students who speak English as a second language. Students at Burton speak languages including Spanish, French, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
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 1-hour Virtual Panelist Coaching Session if they have not attended one in the past. Training must be completed by October 25.
Approximate time commitment:
New Panelist: 4 hours – 2 hours prep (training, coaching, materials review) + 2-hour event
Returning Panelist: 2.5 hours – 30 minutes prep + 2-hour event
