The research benefits of improving equity, diversity and inclusion

3 Dec 2019, 13:30


Invited Talk HPC Applications


Dr Toni Collis (WHPC & Collis-Holmes Innovations)


Equity, diversity and inclusion seem to be the magic words of the 21st Century. We’ve all been told they are important, but for many, it is nice-to-have but difficult-to-implement. As there is an increasing shortage of highly skilled technology specialists and an increasingly large array of applications, it has never been more important to implement workable equity, diversity and inclusion practices to ensure that we can attract and retain talent

This session will discuss the benefits of diversity and what we all need to be doing to ensure our community benefits. Discussions will include the work being carried out by Women in High Performance Computing to diversify the international supercomputing community and what the African HPC community can learn from this.
