DescriptionEveryone keeps talking about diversity and inclusivity, and the community as a whole is becoming more supportive, but many people are still struggling to establish themselves in their HPC careers. It can be hard to get started, especially if there are not many HPC practitioners around you. Being isolated in your research, not having access to HPC resources or training materials, not having support from your organisation, not being a native English speaker, hitting a glass ceiling, having to move to a different place or sector or working remotely – these are just some of the challenges that many of us have faced or still are facing in our HPC careers.
This panel session will discuss some of the common challenges to finding opportunities in HPC and how people have overcome or are overcoming them to find a successful career in HPC. We will hear personal experiences from early-career members of our community. Everyone is welcome to participate and contribute to this conversation.
