Women in HPC Around the World

SESSION: Women in HPC Around the World

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Fernanda Foertter, Yashema Mack


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). There are numerous systemic causes of women's low participation in STEM fields, which differ very little across the globe. In this BOF we bring together women from different continents to share their stories and experiences and determine ways that we can boost the number of women around the globe enjoying the unique challenges and rewards of a career in HPC.
