The thirteen international Women in HPC workshop will be held at ISC22, Hamburg, Germany. The goal of the workshop is to provide a platform for the community to discuss diversity and inclusivity issues. This workshop will provide early-career women with an opportunity to develop their professional skills and profile, and engage with leaders and managers in the HPC community to improve the inclusion and retention of diverse teams. Following the overwhelming success of the previous WHPC workshops we will once again discuss methods and steps that can be taken to address the under-representation of women from all backgrounds, in particular, by discussing the following topics: Being part of the solution: instructions for advocates and allies Putting in place a framework to help women grow their careers Explore pathways to leadership positions Supporting other under-represented groups to create a more inclusive community We will also provide opportunities aimed at promoting and providing women with the skills to thrive in HPC including: Posters and lightning talks by women working in HPC Short talks on topics including sponsorship and mentorship, reverse mentorship to achieve diversity, addressing toxic behaviour at work, career advancement strategies, dealing with the diversity/minority tax and 3-minute networking solution.
