IGNITE -- Melrose, MA

IGNITE, an acronym for Inspiring Girls Now In Technology Evolution, is a network of girls and women who dream big dreams. The women work with technology in nearly every imaginable sector of the work world. The girls - typical high school students trying to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives - use familiar technology everyday (cell phones, video games, the Internet), but most have never considered careers that envision, develop, market, sell, apply, or rely on these and other technologies. When the women share their personal stories with the girls, sparks of curiosity, knowledge, hope, and possibility are ignited. The synergy generated by this interaction soon has the girls blazing paths to previously unimagined futures of their own.
