We invite you to join in a special networking event to celebrate the role of women in high performance computing careers. We are bringing together women leaders and young career women in corporate organizations, research institutions, academia, and business for networking, mentoring, and sharing of knowledge. Together with our supporters and leaders in the community we are creating opportunities for women to network, learn, and build connections.
Learn more from our founder and inspirational women leaders in HPC. Enhance your understanding of the compelling need for better representation of women in HPC. We are encouraging members from the European HPC community to add their voices and join the Women in HPC global community. We will celebrate our women leaders, early career women and enjoy a lunch with like-minded partners, from all parts of the community, as part of a growing coalition for improved gender diversity.
