ESnet staff help mentor WINS participants at SC15

In addition to being connected to the world at 1.6 terabits per second, the recent SC15 conference in Austin provided powerful networking opportunities for five up-and-coming women network experts through the NSF-supported Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program. The program is aimed at training and mentoring women faculty and staff from institutions across the country by having them participate in SCinet, the ultra-high bandwidth network created each year to support SC.

Jason Zurawski, a member of ESnet’s Science Engagement Team and longtime SCinet member, mentored  WINS participants Sana Bellamine from CENIC and Megan Sorensen from Idaho State University.  Nick Boraglio of ESnet’s Network Engineering Team worked with Debbie Fligor from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as members of the SCinet Routing Team.
