On July 12, 2022 our ISC22 keynote, invited speakers, early career presenters and committee volunteers gathered for a 1-hour rapid-fire re-cap of our first global, in-person workshop in over two years.
Throughout this event this team kept circling back to the importance of keeping diversity, equity and inclusion at the heart of what they do in work and in life. The group openly shared the many ideas, successes, and failures that they have experienced and provide candid insight on what it means to build up an inclusive community. Listen in on what they had to say on:
- How to lift up your colleagues and give credit where credit is due
- What it means to be an ally to underrepresented groups
- How to improve upon listening and feedback skills
- The importance of discussing (and even celebrating) failures
- Using the reframing technique to address tough situations
- What it means to be a part of the WHPC community
- Press Release from the Cockcroft Institute – Elisabetta Boella writes about her experience as a WHPC Workshop Committee Volunteer.
- SBI Feedback Model – Jack Wells’ preferred method for providing robust feedback to team members, colleagues, and peers.
- Results of the informal Diversity Tax poll – Cristin Merritt’s findings from a general survey of selected HPC Communities on what Diversity Tax means to them.
