We are very pleased to have been accepted as a Women in HPC (WHPC) Chapter, a community-level group that fulfils the WHPC mission locally.

EPCC was one of the founders of WHPC, and the introduction of the Chapter and affiliate pilot programme is a source of pride, particularly as this will allow WHPC knowledge, expertise and activities to be tailored to the needs of local HPC communities.

EPCC has a long established commitment to encouraging diversity in computational science and STEM. We are committed to inclusivity and supporting young people to consider careers in STEM, no matter their gender identity, sexual orientation, social background or ethnicity. Becoming a WHPC Chapter will allow us to apply WHPC tools and expertise to the pursuit of our diversity goals, which also align with the goals of WHPC.

We will keep you updated on progress over the coming months.

WHPC is stewarded by EPCC at the University of Edinburgh.
