BOF: WOMEN IN HPC: NON-TRADITIONAL PATHS TO HPC AND HOW THEY CAN AND DO ENRICH THE FIELD

There is often the unspoken expectation that those best equipped to work in HPC have studied computer science or a physical science to PhD level. However, those who have not taken such a ‘standard ‘ or ‘traditional’ route to HPC can and do contribute meaningfully to the field. In this BoF we examine how to broaden the community’s perceptions to access a more diverse talent pool. We will hear from three women who came to HPC from non-standard directions, followed by discussion with audience participation on how to recruit from non-traditional backgrounds, broadening the HPC talent pool.

Speakers:

  • Kristy Kallback-Rose, Storage Systems Engineer at NERSC
  • Asmae Mhassni, Engineer at Intel
  • Fernanda Foertter, Staff Member in the data group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
