This session will share tips and strategies for attracting and increasing diversity in your workforce, from small modifications in job postings, to cultural shifts that encourage employee retention. The oil & gas industry has recognized the need to bring in a more diverse talent pool, to fill the hundreds of positions in advanced computing, machine learning/artificial intelligence, and data science that are opening up in the coming years. Successfully increasing diversity in the workplace requires careful planning and support at all levels.

Texas Women in HPC (TXWHPC) has organized this workshop to share best practices to broaden the pipeline of candidates for HPC-related jobs, and offer suggestions for ways to keep your organization humming smoothly. Experts from academia, the oil & gas and computing industries will present and share their experiences related to hiring and maintaining a more diverse workforce, and the importance of male allies. The panel session will offer an opportunity for the audience to ask questions of the presenters.
