Women in HPC: Mentorship and Leadership

SESSION: Women in HPC: Mentorship and Leadership

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Fernanda Foertter, Toni Collis



Although women comprise more than half the world's population, they make up only a small percentage of people in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, including the many disciplines associated with high-performance computing (HPC). Studies have shown that many minorities in STEM attribute their success to important role models such as teachers and mentors within the field. Despite women's low participation in HPC, there are a number of notable women in the field. In this BOF, we bring successful women leaders in HPC to discuss their career paths and the role of mentorship in their success.
