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 our vision. A year later, we formally opened up the Programme for new applications.
The Programme enables WHPC to share its expertise and knowledge and facilitate 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. WHPC works 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. A Chapters Committee made up of Chapter representatives is designed to support the individual chapters, share knowledge and ideas, and develop a sustainable future for the programme.
