Attracting, retaining and developing female talent across the world is not only essential to an organization performance-- it's a business imperative. Learn how to be a leader of positive change for women in HPC. Learn how to create the social infrastructure to give women and other underrepresented groups access to the education, resources and opportunities they need to fully reach their potential. Also hear about how important it is to be focused on the pipeline of girls staying in science, technology, engineering and math in the learning paths. Come to hear about what IBM Canada and XSEDE are doing to help drive engagement of girls in STEM and be prepared to have an open discussion about what still needs to be done to increase the numbers of girls pursuing STEM education and careers.
