Women in HPC: Pathways and Roadblocks

SESSION: Women in HPC: Pathways and Roadblocks

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

EVENT TAG(S): Outreach

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Rebecca Hartman-Baker, Toni Collis, Valerie Maxville



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). Within certain subdisciplines and occupational categories in HPC, women comprise a higher percentage of the population than the overall average. In this BOF, we seek to understand what makes these particular subfields so successful in attracting women, and how other subfields might emulate their successes.
