Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC) began with a question – “Why are there not more women in HPC?”

This led to a mission to find the answer. On our journey we discovered that by bringing the HPC community together, we could provide research that would raise awareness, support to organizations and women based on what we learned, and opportunities for women to network, learn, and become strong!

Diversity creates stronger organizations and a stronger HPC community. Our goal – support for the HPC community and the women in the community to engage this generation of HPC users.
