DALLAS, November 10, 2018 – Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC) will again be leading the conversation on diversity and inclusion in the HPC community at its biggest annual event at this year’s Supercomputing conference (SC18). Women in HPC has grown into an organization and network with global reach, holding programs of events at the major international supercomputing and IT conferences.

“The movement is growing. More and more allies are joining in efforts to support diversity and encourage inclusion. Women in HPC members’ efforts are increasing and we are organizing at the grassroots level. We are now a force that is fostering positive change in the community,” says Dr. Toni Collis, Chair and Co-Founder of WHPC and Chief Business Development Officer at Appentra Solutions.

Last year, WHPC launched a highly effective global Twitter campaign with the hashtag #WeAreHPC, which featured selfies of both men and women working in HPC. The organization is continuing the tradition this year and encourages everyone in the community to celebrate diversity on their teams. WHPC will help share the message throughout its social media channels.
