Q: Are men welcome to attend R-Ladies events?
A: Yes, men are welcome at this event. Our mission is to encourage more women and non-binary individuals to get involved in the R community. However, we ask that cis men come as guests of women and gender minorities to our events to promote a sense support and encouragement for women and gender minorities in the R community. Please help us by spreading the word about R-Ladies. Please also take the time to review our code of conduct before you attend: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki/Code-of-Conduct

The term "women and gender minorities" is inclusive of individuals who identify as female (trans and cis), trans-men, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, intersex, and all minority genders).
