Celebrate Diversity Day

November 14, 2023

Women in HPC continues to support the gains we are making in bringing greater equity within our community.  Come celebrate with us on Tuesday, November 14th all day at the SC’23 conference.

We’re proud to announce that we will have shirts, snoods, and more available for individuals to obtain in advance of Diversity Day. You can grab these…

On November 14th we encourage you to wear your WHPC swag from this or prior years – or simply show your support for increasing the visibility of women and other underrepresented groups in your own way!

We’ll be finishing up the night with our WHPC Networking Reception.  Tickets will free but space is limited – check the event page for more details.

Many of our allies, members and supporters will also be hosting talks or events celebrating diversity throughout the conference.  As we get further details we’ll be sure to include them in our agenda.
