Public Affairs - IGNITE

The latest STEM statistics show that women remain underrepresented in both Engineering and Technology degrees and careers. 

While women receive over half of bachelor’s degrees awarded in the biological sciences, they receive far fewer in the computer sciences, engineering, physics, and mathematics and statistics. 

Women remain underrepresented in the STEM workforce with the greatest disparities occurring in engineering and computer and mathematical sciences. 

Cathi Rodgveller noticed this disparity and figured she needed to do something about it. And she did! She created IGNITE

IGNITE stands for Inspiring Girls Now In Technology Evolution. 

Cathi Rodgveller, CEO and Founder of IGNITE, recently visited our show and she was joined by Ali Wulf, who works at TUNE, and Michele Amato, who teaches Computer Science at Broadview-Thomson K-8 in Seattle. She won Ignite’s best practice award this year.
