N8 CIR Women in HPC Chapter

The N8 CIR became officially a Women in High-Performance Computing (WHPC) chapter in 2021.

Empowering Women in HPC

The N8 CIR is proud to be a Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC) chapter since 2021. We strive to foster a diverse and inclusive community within N8 CIR, welcoming individuals from all backgrounds.

Our mission is to:

  • Advocate for gender balance and inclusivity within N8 CIR and among collaborating academics.
  • Identify and help to overcome barriers preventing women from participating in training workshops and pursuing leadership roles in HPC.
  • Showcase the contributions of underrepresented groups in the N8 HPC environment through initiatives like case studies, interviews, and social media engagement.
  • Ensure accessibility for individuals with disabilities in all our events and activities.

To achieve these goals, we are putting together an action group comprised of academics, research software engineers, researchers, and senior managers. This group will meet at least three times annually, with one open meeting inviting broader participation from N8 CIR members. The aim is to develop, implement, and monitor initiatives promoting diversity, inclusion, and accessibility across the N8. Please contact the WHPC N8 CIR Chapter lead, Mariann, at mariann.hardey@durham.ac.uk if you want to be involved.
