BoF: Practical Steps to Diversifying the HPC Workforce
Wednesday 2rd June 2017, 1.45-2.45pm
Substanz 1+2, Frankfurt Messe
Following the success of our BoF at SC16, we will have a practical audience-focused BoF at ISC17 discussing unconscious bias, stereotype threat, or imposter syndrome. The BoF will discuss the real effects of these topics on the workplace, providing the audience with an introduction to each theme, how these themes may affect you, and how they impact employers, employees, advisors, managers or your peers. This discussion will also be of benefit when considering improving diversity for underrepresented groups other than women.
This workshop will focus on two topics:
Thursday 22nd June 2017, 9 am - 1 pm
Our 6th Workshop! We continue with the theme of educating and supporting diversity in the workplace.
Skills to thrive in an HPC career. Here all participants get hints and tips on public speaking, effective workplace communications, taking your career to the next step, and speed networking practice.
Improving diversity in the workplace.These sessions are targeted for for anyone in the workplace, with specific tools for leaders and managers on how to successfully address discrimination in the workplace, the benefits of professional networks and mentoring, and how to identify the roadblocks facing those in underrepresented groups.
Everyone is welcome to all of WHPC's events (it is about inclusivity after all!) irrespective of gender, career stage, or background. We have a goal to become more diverse ourselves and particularly welcome male attendees. It takes all of us working together to build better performing and more productive teams.
