DescriptionThe eleventh international Women in HPC workshop was scheduled to be held at SC20 in Atlanta, GA. It aims to increase the recruitment, retention and success of women in the international HPC workforce. The WHPC workshop series has become the leading event on improving equity, diversity and inclusion, providing all attendees, irrespective of gender, with skills to thrive in the workplace and information to build frameworks for diverse recruitment and retention policies and actions.
We will focus on the following topics: raising awareness about gender equality in the workspace, tackling negative workplace behavior for an inclusive environment, promoting recognition and celebration of our achievements, overcoming fear and taking the leap in one's career journey and discussing effective self and peer evaluations for a successful career. We will also enable opportunities aimed at providing women with the skills to thrive in HPC, including short lightning talks by women in HPC.
