The Importance of Diverse Perspectives in Advancing HPC
Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI)
HPC Community Collaboration
TimeTuesday, 16 November 20212:15pm - 3pm CST
DescriptionIt is recognized that diverse perspectives often lead to breakthroughs and innovations in science. The diversity of perspectives can result from different fields of science and/or a variety of experiences by those from different backgrounds. In HPC, it is recognized that some communities are underrepresented, which limits the opportunity to incorporate contributions to the advancement of science that are influenced by a broad spectrum of cultures. This roundtable will focus on strategies to expand opportunities for inclusion in the continuous evolution of HPC services.
Roundtable Participants: Valerie Taylor, Argonne National Laboratory, Convener; Mary Hall, University of Utah, Discussant; Richard Ladner, University of Washington, Discussant; Mary Ann Leung, Sustainable Horizons Institute, Discussant.
