Some time ago NAG set out its commitment to encouraging girls into STEM subjects with the aim of tacking the imbalance of women in HPC (and tech in general) - more info. We’ve lead and participated in various outreach activities since then – some of them with the Women in HPC group – some with the STEM Ambassador program to which a few NAG colleagues belong.
So when WHPC launched their Chapter & Affiliates program earlier this year we felt the fit was right for NAG to join and cement our longstanding commitment to the important initiative. We are delighted to have been accepted as the first commercial organisation WHPC Chapter recently. You can read more about being a WHPC Chapter here.
Planning is underway for NAG’s attendance at SC18 in Denver where WHPC will be active – as an aside, it is NAG’s 30th year at SC – we have been present at every single event since its inception! We will be happy to chat about how as an organisation heavily involved in HPC we are making steps to ensure equality and increased diversity, and will be publishing our updated diversity figures.
