Description

PRACEdays19 will host a session dedicated to an open discussion on Equality and Diversity in HPC.

The presence and contribution of women, and other generally underrepresented groups, is increasing in many scientific domains including HPC, but numbers show that still there is gap to be bridged. Some attempts are being made to increase inclusivity, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Procedures put in place in good faith to support the inclusion of underrepresented groups may actually be perceived as undermining competence, and actually backfire.

Which are present, and sometimes unconscious, barriers for under represented groups in science and in particular in computational research? Have you encountered inclusivity barriers in your career and how did you overcome them? What can be done to reduce those barriers? Which are the best practices from your organisation?

This session is meant to raise awareness and inspire participants to start working with these topics. We would like to hear from you what you experienced, what you tried, what worked, what didn’t work, and what you are thinking of trying and would like to hear others’ opinions on. Outcome of the session will be summarised in an article to be widely disseminated.
