SESSION: Broader Engagement Session V: Mentor/Protege Session & Mixer

EVENT TYPE: HPC Interconnections, Broader Engagement

TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Gerardine (Geri) F. Lamble

Presenter(s):Geri Lamble, Natasha Floersch, Richard Coffey, Tony Drummond


The Mentor-Protege event is organized by the Broader Engagement committee to support the development of underrepresented professionals in HPC by creating opportunities for attendees to establish developmental professional relationships. By pairing fairly new SC participants with more experienced attendees, the Mentor-Protege program provides introduction, engagement and support. Beginning with a kick-off exercise of digital storytelling to facilitate introductions and orientations, Mentor-Protege pairs then move on to discuss both networking and technical development pathways to help BE newcomers to the conference integrate with the larger SC community. A pre-conference technical development activity supported by the Mentor Protege program is poster help mentoring made available to SC BE participants wherein applicants submitting a poster to the SC conference can receive pre-submission mentoring help. Digital Storytelling: Developing Your Stories Storytelling is a fundamental part of being human. Stories build understanding and improve collaboration between groups of different experiences. Personal stories provide us reminders of our past and allow others a glimpse of our worldview. Professional stories communicate to managers or collaborators your unique value. Natasha Floersch from the University of Colorado, Denver and Richard Coffey from the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility will lead a 50 minute session on developing our stories through Broader Engagement at Super Computing. This storytelling exercise will teach you the basics of developing a digital story, as well as help you continue to develop your professional network at Broader Engagement and SC13.
