Women in HPC Workshop Returns to ISC 2018

The eighth international Women in HPC Workshop will be held June 28 at ISC 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. This workshop provides leaders and managers in the HPC community with methods to improve diversity and also to provide early career women with an opportunity to develop their professional skills and profile.

Through collaboration and networking, WHPC strives to bring together women in HPC and technical computing while encouraging women to engage in outreach activities and improve the visibility of inspirational role models.

Following the overwhelming success of the 2017 WHPC workshops we will once again discuss methods and steps that can be taken to address the under-representation of women, in particular by discussing the following topics:

  • How to build workplace resilience and maintain well-being, while managing work stress.
  • Being part of the solution: instructions for advocates and allies.
  • Best practices from organizations on improving workplace diversity.
  • Managing the two body problem and achieving effective work-life balance.

WHPC will also provide opportunities aimed at promoting and providing women with the skills to thrive in HPC including:

  • Short talks by women working in HPC
  • Pointers on how to handle workplace conflicts and effectively respond to discrimination
  • Short talks on: best practices from equity frameworks from outside HPC, suggestions and challenges for women in HPC related venture capitals, effectively dealing with workplace discrimination, building a successful career, excelling in the workforce, etc.

Registration for ISC 2018 and the WHPC Workshop will open soon.
