In-Person Panel at Paschal Sherman Indian School (Omak)

Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE Panel at Paschal Sherman Indian School at 169 North End Omak Lake Rd, Omak, WA!

IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Paschal Sherman Indian School (PSIS) serves a 90% American Indian student population. 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! Tribal business leaders are especially encouraged to consider telling their story to students.

At PSIS, STEM is weaved into curriculum and students learn about shelter building, native crafts, and native language embedded in technology. Students are interested in Art, Engineering, and Visual Arts. Please bring your story about any one of these topics to share with students.

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.

The total time commitment is about 2 hours of pre-event preparation for new Panelists and 30 minutes of preparation for returning Panelists, in addition to two hours for the event itself. Training must be completed by September 4.

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

Book Event


Inspire IGNITE Students with your story! You are required to review our short Speaker Training and complete one panelist coaching session before the event.
