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 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. We are in the process of updating our Panelist Training Video for the 2024-2025 school year and will share the new link with registered Panelists as soon as possible.

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

The Lead Panelist will moderate the Panel by asking IGNITE-supplied prompt questions to fellow Panelists, maintain awareness of the allotted time for the session, and participate in the Panel with their own responses. This is a new role for the 2024-2025 school year, so Panelists who are comfortable moderating and/or have served as IGNITE Panelists in the past are encouraged to lead! Standard IGNITE panelist training is required (Coaching Session for new Panelists, 2024-2025 Training Video).
