Join IGNITE Worldwide and
together we can change gender equity in STEM
The world is missing out on the talent of women, especially women of color, who are not fairly represented in STEM fields. This is reflected in the worsening gender inequity seen in many STEM fields. IGNITE is changing these statistics every day through our award-winning program, and we need your support to expand our impact.
IGNITE Worldwide is the answer to achieving gender equity in STEM. IGNITE works directly with educators to connect girls* with STEM opportunities during the school day. Our award-winning Program offers a variety of interactive events featuring STEM professionals** who represent IGNITE Students.

IGNITE Worldwide is leading the path to change the representation in STEM fields, and we need your help to make this future possible. Join industry leaders in becoming a champion for diversity!
The IGNITE Worldwide Program is designed to be accessible to all schools, teachers, and students.
IGNITE is committed to meeting students and educators where they are, through flexible options like virtual or in-person programming.
IGNITE’s pledge to create permanent change within STEM fields begins with an equitable approach – giving all IGNITE Students the chance to engage in STEM during the school day. By sparking an interest in STEM education and career fields at an early age, IGNITE Students are more interested and engaged in the opportunities available to them.
Underrepresented groups are being left behind in STEM. IGNITE Worldwide is intentional about reaching underrepresented communities, providing the IGNITE Program at no cost to the school district – which is why we need you to help grow our funding. To ensure that students have access to the IGNITE Program, events are offered during the school day in cooperation with teachers and their schools.
Diversity in the workforce propels innovation. Through an expansive network of mentors and advocates,
IGNITE Worldwide has built a supportive community of STEM educators and professionals that represent
IGNITE Students, grounded in our shared values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.
The IGNITE Program is grounded in best practice research, designed to achieve the highest impact
possible for our students, educators, and volunteers. By providing customized training and tools, the IGNITE Team provides support to IGNITE Teachers and Volunteers on all aspects of event planning and logistics, day-of activities, and post-event reporting.
