Mission Statement

IGNITE™ inspires girls to become the future technology leaders and innovators of our world. We work directly with teachers to provide engaging events like field trips to local companies, panels with professional women in STEM, and hands-on workshops. We serve all girls and non-binary students, with a focus on students from undeserved communities, students of color, and those who may have not yet considered a future in STEM.

Description

Started in 1999, IGNITE (Inspiring Girls Now In Technology Evolution) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that introduces school girls from grades 6-12 to technology careers via panel discussions, job shadowing, mentoring and field trips throughout the school year to visit the work places of professional women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.

IGNITE has educated and empowered over 60,000 young women in middle school and high school grades to pursue education and careers in STEM. In the Seattle School District alone, female participation in technology classes soared from under 5% to over 50% after implementing the IGNITE program. The IGNITE program is also donated to countries all over the world, where local educators lead the program and empower girls in their communities.
