Join us for our SC17 Networking & Careers Celebration Evening
Last year at SC16, we held our first evening cocktail and networking reception. At SC17 we will be expanding our event and bringing together employers with women (and men!) who wish to find out more about working in a more diverse and inclusive workforce. Join us to discuss working in HPC, brainstorming the difficulties, the challenges, and the opportunities to improve diversity and inclusivity for everyone, and in particular women and participate in the opportunity to meet our sponsors to discuss working in a more relaxed environment.
We want everyone to attend:
- Women and Men
- Any Career Stage: Early, mid, and established
- Any Level in the Organization: Junior, Managers, and Leaders
- Any type of Organization: Corporations, research institutions, and academia
We all coming together to bring about positive change.
By attending this event, you will get the opportunity to talk with inspirational leaders in high-performance computing, meet the up and coming who are changing the face of HPC, particularly the women who inspire us in HPC and leading the next generation into a more diverse workforce.
It’s about networking, learning, and building connections.
The reception starts at 6:15pm and is just a few minutes walk from the Colorado Convention Center. We’ll have a few words from our Anchor sponsor Intel and hear from our career supporters on the variety of opportunities available across the international HPC community from industry to academia.
Our events our only possible because of the generous support we receive. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their continued support of our work and activities.

BoF: Women in HPC: Non-Traditional Paths to HPC and How They Can and Do Enrich the Field
There is often the unspoken expectation that those best equipped to work in HPC have studied computer science or a physical science to PhD level. However, those who have not taken such a ‘standard ‘ or ‘traditional’ route to HPC can and do contribute meaningfully to the field. In this BoF we examine how to broaden the community’s perceptions to access a more diverse talent pool. We will hear from three women who came to HPC from non-standard directions, followed by discussion with audience participation on how to recruit from non-traditional backgrounds, broadening the HPC talent pool.
- Kristy Kallback-Rose, Storage Systems Engineer at NERSC
- Asmae Mhassni, Engineer at Intel
- Fernanda Foertter, Staff Member in the data group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
