Our Pilot Programme (Now transitioned to a regular programme)
We are now accepting new applications for Chapters and Affiliates.
Early in 2018 we started working with a range of groups and organisations that are passionate about WHPC’s vision and mission to develop a Chapters and Affiliates Programme. We were delighted to accept five WHPC Chapters and three WHPC affiliates as part of a pilot programme to help frame a sustainable future for WHPC and all who support of vision.
The Pilot Programme enabled WHPC to share its expertise and knowledge and facilitated the new Chapters and Affiliates to use this knowledge to tailor activities and develop diversity and inclusion goals suitable to the needs of local HPC communities. During the Pilot, WHPC worked with the Chapters and Affiliates to support and promote the work of women in their organizations, develop crucial role models, and assist employers in the recruitment and retention of a diverse and inclusive HPC workforce. The Pilot included the formation of a Chapters Committee designed to support the individual chapters, share knowledge and ideas, and develop a sustainable future for the programme.
