Women in HPC


EVENT TYPE: Workshops

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM

Organizer(s):Toni Collis, Daniel Holmes, Adrian Jackson, Lorna Smith, Alison Kennedy



Gender inequality is a problem across all scientific disciplines. Women are more likely to successfully complete tertiary education than men but less likely to become scientists. The multi-disciplinary background of HPC scientists should facilitate broad female engagement but fewer than 10% of participants were female at two recent HPC conferences. Strong gender stereotyping of science negatively impacts female uptake and achievement in scientific education and employment. Removing gender stereotyping engages more women and gender-balanced groups have greater collective intelligence, which should benefit the HPC community.

This workshop will address gender inequality in HPC by encouraging on-going participation of female researchers and providing an opportunity for female early career researchers to showcase their work and network with role-models and peers in an environment that reduces the male gender stereotype. Invited talks from leading female researchers will discuss their careers and a panel session will create a gender-equality action plan. http://www.womeninhpc.org.uk/sc14
