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.



    Learn about the benefits of being a member in Women in HPC, the members, and how you can get involved both as individual or as an organisation.


    In our Resource section, you can find job opportunities in the HPC community .

    Coming soon: key facts and information on improving the representation of women in the community, results of our surveys, learn about best practices from the guides we’ve prepared and find out what you can do to recruit and retain women in your workforce and links to other interesting information.


    We all need a little inspiration! Read our blog to find out about exciting activities in the HPC  world, highlight awards, role models, members, and the activities our members are involved in.


    What is an organization without events! In this section you can see the events we are participating in and find where you can join us!


    We do have news to share! We have placed our press releases, mentions of Women in HPC in publications, and our newsletters.
