In-Person Panel at Woodmont K-8 (Des Moines, WA)
Inspire IGNITE Students in STEM during an IGNITE Panel for middle school students at Woodmont K-8 at 26454 16th Avenue S. Des Moines, WA 98198!
IGNITE aims to increase gender diversity in high-wage/high demand STEM fields, such as technology and engineering. Woodmont K-8 serves a diverse population, including students with East African, Eastern European, Asian, Jamaican, and Hispanic/Latinx heritage. Students speak languages including Somali, Amharic, Russian, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Punjabi, Creole, and Spanish. 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 Virtual Panelist Coaching Session if they have not attended one in the past. Training must be completed by March 9.
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.
