The Women in HPC (WHPC) Mentoring Programme connects women from around the world with mentorship and support that will help them to achieve their full potential as HPC professionals. This will primarily be a professionals’ network. However, where appropriate the mentoring program will be open to students as well (for example when the host organization does not provide an appropriate scheme or HPC related mentor).

The WHPC Mentoring Programme is accepting applications for the next cohort, running during 1st March–30th June 2021. See below for more information and the application form.

Here is more information:




The WHPC mentoring program will be open three times a year and will last four months. During the prescribed mentoring program, both mentors and mentees will receive training on how to make the most of mentoring, as well as the opportunity to participate in webinars on key skills. Mentoring will be provided one-to-one with mentors and mentees from different organizations and career-levels. Each formal mentor-mentee engagement session lasts four months. WiDS accepts mentor/mentee applications year long and we will pool you into the next cohort.
