Workshop - Empowering Careers: Bringing WHPC’s Impact to the PEARC Community

The 19th International Women in HPC Workshop will take place at PEARC24 in Providence, RI, USA, with the primary objective of nurturing a diverse and inclusive Research Computing and Data (RCD) and High-Performance Computing (HPC) community. Our overarching goal is to cultivate competencies geared towards appreciating the value of a diverse workforce and establishing an inclusive environment that welcomes all Humans. This workshop the first time that WHPC is formally engaging with PEARC and our agenda focuses on bringing the communities together through shared values of diversity and inclusion, encompassing both women and men from underrepresented groups.

The focal points of the WHPC@PEARC24 workshop include:

  • Enhancing diversity and inclusion across the entire RCD and HPC workforce.
  • Facilitating a deeper comprehension of the nuances of diversity, equity, and inclusion across various demographic groups.
  • Strategies for recruitment, retention, and success.
  • Promoting community building through interactive networking opportunities.
  • Emphasizing the importance of learning from and valuing diverse experiences and career trajectories.

The WHPC@PEARC24 half-day workshop has two main priorities. First, our focus is on introducing the WHPC organization to the PEARC audience. We will feature short talks from the WHPC executive committee and local chapter organizers. These talks will set the stage for building a network and collaborating further with the attendees.

Our second focus is on building connections within our community, particularly for early career individuals. We will present a few short talks around career paths, specifically aimed at early and/or mid career individuals. We will also hold an interactive networking session, allowing the PEARC audience to interact directly with active WHPC members.
