Mid-career Women help build SCinet with WINS Apprenticeship at SC17

In this special guest feature, Alisa Alering from ScienceNode writes that a team of women engineers helped build SCinet as part of the WINS program at SC17. “A lot of these women come from small schools, and they may not normally get exposed to the technology SCinet provides,” says Meehl. “It’s a great experience technically, but they also get a great professional experience meeting people—that really brings value to your ability to do your job.”

WINS Program Sponsors Six Women to Help Build SCinet at SC17

SC17 has chosen six women from IT departments around the United States to participate in the Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program, helping to build and operate SCinet, the very high capacity SC conference network. “Now in its third year, WINS is a collaboration between UCAR, ESnet, and KINBER. Although small numbers of women have been members of SCinet since its earliest days, WINS was launched to increase the diversity of the SCinet volunteer staff and provide professional development opportunities to highly qualified women in the field of networking and computing.”
